One of the places where The Land Connection really shines is in the quality of our visual media. If you’re looking at the various places where we live online, you’re sure to see beautiful pictures of farms, training classes, recipes made with locally grown ingredients, or our recently-concluded farmers market. Our yearly calendar, made in-house by our staff, is well-known for its useful tips on farming and eating seasonal, fresh food, but also for the gorgeous pictures it contains.
We put a lot of effort into making visual media here. You’ll find copious examples of that by looking at our Instagram and Flickr pages, our new Seaason Extension Infographic, and the recent updates to our YouTube channel. Everyone on The Land Connection staff contributes, as photographers, designers, videographers or a combination of all three.
Do we do all this because we like pretty pictures? Well, yes. As a staff, we like our stuff to look good. But that’s not the only reason. We know that quality images will attract attention to our programs. By spending the time to make attractive materials, we’re working to get more people into our classes and workshops, more people to attend our farmers’ market, and more people to become supporters of The Land Connection. In other words, all these nice images are really tools to help us accomplish our mission. The fact that they’re nice to look at is just lagniappe for the eyes.
