Focus On Farming from A Greener World
In case you missed it:
A Greener World’s Marketing Team has been hard at work helping people understand the meaning of AGW’s certifications. One part of this effort includes consolidating our social media accounts so that our organization (and by extension, our certified farmers and their products) are easy to find, follow and tag in online conversations. If you’re on social media and haven’t followed us yet, please do—be sure to tag us with @AGreenerWorld on Facebook, @AGreenerWorld on Twitter and #AGreenerWorld or @agreenerworldorg on Instagram.

If you already follow us, we want to make it simple for you to talk about AGW to your customers and followers. The more they know about your certifications, the more it helps everyone! We know the future depends on farms and businesses like yours—our goal is to “grow the pie” and it’s going to take all of us.

We’ll see you online, and thanks for all that you do!
