Social media workshops

If you are reading this, I might be I am preaching to the choir. However, this message is worth spreading around.  I was sent this notice about a series of workshops that show you how to use social media on your farm. These workshops  are being conducted by the Carolina Farm Stewardship Association throughout NC in 2012.  See insert below for more information:

Social Media for Farmers

Want to harness the power of Facebook, Twitter and YouTube to reach new customers and grow your farm business?

You won’t want to miss this all-day hands-on workshop designed especially for farmers and taught by social media experts, Johanna Kramer (@durhamfoodie) and Cary and Grace Kanoy (GeoCore Films).

You will leave this workshop with a fully-functioning Facebook and Twitter page (or upgrade your existing pages), the skills to shoot your own short farm video using your cell phone, camera, or iPad, and the training to take better farm photos. Includes lunch. 

Cost: $10

All workshops will be held from 9:00-4:00 PM.
