The session will cover different ways you can use social media and other digital tools and platforms to support your community garden's work. This interactive session will go over the basics of creating an online presence and will include some easy take away activities to put into practice straight away. We will be exploring the theme of storytelling and go over some top tips for creating fun, inspiring, meaningful and engaging content. Nat will be sharing her experience and examples of using different tools for a variety of different gardens, organisations, projects and contexts.
