Agritourism Networking Association plans workshops
in Durham and western N.C.

Following are dates and locations for the workshops:

Workshops start at 3 p.m. and cost $25, which includes materials, tours and dinner.

The workshops will focus on topics such as marketing through social media, hospitality tips to bring in and keep customers, estate planning and insurance needs, and working with elected officials. Participants will also have an opportunity to network and share ideas with other agribusiness owners.
