FARMERS and landowners wanting to find out more about social media are being invited to attend a special training session.
The three hour course, called Twitter in the Farmyard, will be held at Bakewell Agricultural Centre, from 10.30am on Wednesday, March 12.
Simon Haley will be hosting the course, he co-founded the Twitter forum AgrichatUK, which is followed by 9,500 participants.
Twitter in the Farmyard has been designed to help attendees find out about and start using social media websites such as Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.
Aimed at farmers, landowners and rural workers who have never used social media websites before, the seminar will include step-by-step instructions on how to set up accounts and get the most out of them.
Simon said: “Social media is a revolutionary tool for the rural industry, farmers can use online platforms to skip a number of links in the food chain and sell their products directly to consumers.”
Places cost £15 plus VAT and can be booked by calling 01785 337010.
