2016 Conference - "Solutions for a Growing World"
November 3, 2016 | Evergreen State Fairgrounds | Monroe, WA
Participants will spend an outstanding day of learning, networking and enjoying farm fresh local products prepared by fantastic chefs from the Mill Creek Country Club. Local and national farmers, researchers and experts will share innovative ideas, and attendees will learn how new and upcoming farmers are shaping the future of the agricultural world and providing tomorrow’s food. Some of the top experts in the country will present 24 great workshop classes in six industry tracks. The conference will once again include Focus on Forestry workshops.
Audra will present a storytelling workshop at the conference:
Social Media Success: Telling your #FarmStory: Did you know that most Americans are removed from agriculture by at least three generations? That has resulted in a huge gap in knowledge about agriculture, but have heart! There is a renewed interest; people are becoming engaged with food and food producers in new ways through social media. Farmers and food producers now have an opportunity to tell their farm story to a large audience. But where do you start? Over the past few years I have learned something about connecting eaters with food producers. We’ll learn about storytelling methods and discuss social media platforms, and tips for creating compelling content and connecting with your customer audience.
