I have been pretty inconsistent about using different channels of communication and I’m planning to tighten that up.  I want to emphasize that the only way that you are guaranteed to get announcements is by signing up for the newsletter.  Social media systems are increasingly a shakedown that requires you to pay to reach your followers and we don’t have the budget to do that even if we wanted to.  On Facebook and Twitter, you might see all, some, or none of our posts and there is nothing we can do about that.  If you want to sign up for one thing, I recommend the Facebook group.  I put more effort into the group than anything else.


We will use our Facebook page and Twitter account to deliver announcements and new growing guides and blog posts. That should be four posts or less each month. If you just want to know when the store opens and closes and when new guides or posts are published, take your pick of the three as you prefer.


We will use our Facebook group for discussion, primarily about growing and breeding the plants that we work with. The group has new postings almost every day. If you want to get more into the details of these plants, you should join the group.  Only members can see posts in the group and it is a friendly environment, made up of people with a common interest.


The most interesting and useful information from both of the above will be bundled up in our email newsletter, which I now plan to send once per month. Sign up for our newsletter.
