DES MOINES - Women, Land and Legacy (WLL) will host a social media workshop for Iowa women involved in agriculture and/or rural businesses. Women can learn how to build or improve their business using social media tools by attending a morning workshop on April 1 in Tama County.


Social media is everywhere, including agriculture. It’s important to understand how it works for you and your business. Social media creates platforms for discussion, a consumer connection, a real-time stream of information and much more. The WLL State Team is providing this unique opportunity with co-hosts Tama County WLL Local Team and Tama County Economic Development Commission.


JoAnn Seeman, a Digital Communication Strategist at Spindustry Digital in Des Moines, will lead the workshops. Seeman works with clients to develop digital marketing plans and analyze digital data. She is well-versed in search engine optimization, inbound marketing, digital paid ads, as well as social media content development and distribution.


There is no cost for the workshop, however, space is limited, so please register at; note one thing you would like to learn, and your Twitter handle, Facebook page and/or website. Participants do not need to be WLL members to attend.


Registration begins at 8:30 AM. The interactive workshop will run from 9 AM to noon. Laptops and/or tablets are encouraged but are not necessary for the workshop.  


April 1st workshop will be held at Reinig Center at 1007 S Prospect Dr, Toledo, IA 52342.


People needing special accommodations should contact Laura Crowell at 515-323-2207.


Women, Land & Legacy, which began in 2004, works to reach agricultural, rural and urban women, to come together to converse, listen and become empowered to act on their landscape and community. The WLL state team consists of federal, state and private agencies. WLL local teams are currently active in 20 counties. For more information, visit www.womenlandandlegacy.comor find us on Facebook
