GREENWICH, N.Y. — Why should you use social media to promote your farm business? Join the Agricultural Stewardship Association (ASA) and Rensselaer County Cornell Cooperative Extension for an Upgrading Your Social Media Strategy workshop on January 17 & 18 from 6 pm to 8 pm at Greenwich High School.
Social networking websites allow people to interact with one another and build relationships and communities online. When businesses join these social channels, consumers can interact with them directly. This two-part program will include an introduction to social media platforms Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. There will be hands-on demonstrations and practice time. You will also learn how to use these tools for direct marketing.
Registration is $10 per person and is available at www.agstewardship.org or by contacting ASA’s office at (518) 692-7285. Space is limited to 12 people.
The Agricultural Stewardship Association was founded in 1990 by farmers to protect agricultural land and ensure a future for farming in our region. To date, ASA has helped protect 17,160 acres on 110 properties in Washington and Rensselaer counties. For more information about ASA’s work, visit www.agstewardship.org.
