Social Media and Best Practices Resource

Social media has come under increasing scrutiny relative to privacy and self-esteem. Like any tool, its all about how you use it. We see Instagram for photographs and YouTube for videos as viable platforms for members of Student Farmers to showcase their plant growth successes, give tips, and also post content with questions about challenges that they may face. Our goal is to use social media as a Best Practices Resource to advance the Future of Food. With over 15 million high school students and over 19 million college students in the U.S., the potential pool of student insights and content is large and hopefully growing!
