The National Farm-City Council, a nonprofit organization dedicated to enhancing links between farm families and urban residents, has launched a Facebook page supporting the mission of the organization. Local and regional Farm-City organizations are urged to link to the Facebook page with information, pictures and videos on their activities and programs. Others are encouraged to visit the site to discover what the various Farm-City units are doing to tell the story of agriculture to urban residents.
Hugh Whaley, chairman of the National Farm-City Council, notes – as the social media are playing an increasingly important role in fostering better communication between rural and urban citizens, it’s fundamental to use these mediums to communicate to our core audiences.  To go to the site, visit www.facebook.com and search for “National Farm-City Council.” Click “Like” at the top of the page.
This year, National Farm-City week is November 18-24, 2011.
