NeVC: Using a Blog to Reach Master Gardeners

Using a Blog to Reach Master Gardeners-- The Master Gardener Program has been part of Extension since 1972 and communication methods have evolved across county lines - and across state lines. Today, we must communicate statewide and nationwide - quickly. Social media tools are economical, efficient, and relatively simple to learn. Blogs such as my blog for MN volunteers "Over the Backyard Fence", and the national EMG Blog have proven to be simple, fast and satisfying methods of communication. However, blogs must be promoted, and it may take time for people to use them. If you are utilizing blogs, this is a good session to attend. [Julie Weisenhorn, University of Minnesota]
