Workshop Series For Farmers, Producers & Artisans

Get hands-on, practical experience with tools that will make your life easier, cut down on admin time, help you get noticed by customers, and get your books in order.

The Gippsland Digital Toolkit Series is for farmers, producers, artisans, and anyone who runs a food or agriculture business where the real work doesn’t happen in the office. In these four sessions, you’ll learn how to set up and manage your own social media, website, and online sales, organise your bookkeeping and admin, use technology to better manage stock and inventory, and more.

All sessions are delivered free of charge to help out locals like you.

Technology doesn’t have to be a hassle. With the right tools, you can get yourself sorted and get back to doing the work that matters.

If you have a business where you sell to consumers and you’re not on top of social media, you’re missing out on customers and leaving money on the table.

Learn insider tips from social media expert Erika McInerny, who will walk you through how to manage your social media in a way that’s productive, efficient, and will increase your customer engagement. Erika McInerney has been helping regional and rural businesses for years, so she understands how to help people who can’t spend all day staring at their phones.
