Q:  What sort of marketing and publicity opportunities does the
      Organic Garden Trail get involved in?

 

A:   First:  The main aim is for the coordinators is to facilitate media
      exposure at nil cost to members.  They will find ways to market
      the Trail as a 'Tourist Attraction' and an 'Umbrella Brand' and to
      choose media options that will allow as wide as exposure
      as possible. 
     

      Second:  The coordinators will explore no-cost media opportunities
      to allow for a feature  of individual gardens/enterprises in
      suitable types of media whilst including the general OGT brand
      and rationale, the number of overall gardens involved, with the link
      to our OGT website.

 

      Third:  The coordinators will keep themselves well informed about
      paid opportunities for marketing and exposure for the OGT. 
      Where a prospect is identified, (advertising or membership), action
      to secure it will ONLY occur where a discernable benefit to our
      members is obvious, member cost apportions are calculated and
      this information is available to enbable direct member consultation.]
