On June 27th, The Ontario Home Economics Association, Mairlyn Smith, P.H.Ec., and Produce Made Simple had a very successful Twitter party to promote our cookbook, Homegrown, as well as local Ontario produce. It was a fun and informative event, and we were happy to see some of our members joining us.
The hashtag, #LoveLocalON, was trending Top 5 during the Twitter party, with much local food discussions and recipes from the 116 Twitter followers who RSVP'd for the evening event. As you can see from the Twitter analytics infographic here, we had a social media reach of close to 400,000 people!
A big Thank You goes out to our in-house media expert, Sandra Venneri, P.H.Ec., who took time out of her already busy schedule to "Tweet" for @OntarioHEA that night. We hope to have more OHEA members join us next time! Don't forget to follow us on Twitter @OntarioHEA
