Organic Agriculture, Web 2.0, and You!

This workshop showcased tools from cyberspace that can help grow both your farm business and the organic community.

In this age of technology and online consumers it is becoming increasingly important to have an online presence. This workshop showcased tools from cyberspace that can help grow both your farm business and the organic community.  Websites and e-newsletters can be incredibly effective marketing strategies that educate customers while also attracting new ones.  We discussed strategies for farm-specific web design including tips for CSAs and online marketing. We also explored features of eOrganic, the new national organic agriculture web community, and eXtension website where you will be able to find detailed information on organic production. With a user-friendly approach, we discussed a variety of ways you can use technology to your benefit.
