Dear member,

We are running a series of workshops with social media experts, Social Jungle, to empower members to engage more effectively with the public and put farming in a favourable light. Social media represents a huge opportunity for farmers and growers to reach consumers and decision-makers, besides utilising conventional media and educational channels. Better engagement should help us to counter criticism and meet big challenges that arise rapidly in this digital age, from campaigns by vegans and the environmental lobby to more local issues such as gaining planning permission for new farm buildings. To book your place phone 01730 711950 or email There are two events being held in Sussex:

Monday 5th Feb, 6pm at Plumpton

Tuesday 6th Feb, 10am at Brinsbury

Please see the linked flyer for details of the other events if you cannot attend your local one.

Kind regards,

James Osman

County Adviser

East Sussex, West Sussex and the Isle of Wight
