Announcing Small Agricultural Business Workshops!

For Immediate Release

January 5, 2011, Hardwick, VT- Are you interested in how to bring your agricultural business, farm or organization recognition beyond paper flyers and newspaper ads? Would you like to have your computer work for you, instead of you working around your computer?

Beginning January 19th, at 7:15pm, the Center for an Agricultural Economy (CAE) and the Vermont Small Business Development Center (VtSBDC) with the participation of Johnson State College (JSC), will be conducting a 6 workshop series revolving around marketing and computer technology, Introduction to Market Strategy through Computer Technology.

Conducted by guest instructors, these 90 minute workshops will begin by giving an overview of the popular office applications by Microsoft and Open Office. The series will then end by devoting time to online applications like Google and social networking sites. “This program will give you the tools you need to work and compete in the 21st century, “ says Warren Ramsey, one of the guest instructors, “We will work together to break down concepts of certain terms and different programs that are used to advance a business or an idea”. 

Each workshop will be held at the Computer Lab at Hazen Union High School in Hardwick, VT. At $15 each or $60 for the entire series, the workshops are meant to be financially accessible to most individuals, farms, businesses and organizations. Although open to all, priority is given to agricultural-based producers, businesses and organizations.
