Her business lends administrative support and “social capital” to the producer while educating the community about the power and wealth of a local foods system.
The course is designed to help participants discover more about who they are and how that knowledge can help them better market their business, how knowing customers and building relationships can be the key to success and how to become the trusted expert where your customers return again and again.
Specific marketing and networking resources in food, agriculture or rural enterprises are available through this course.
