Promotion group Farm Hack Reading 2019


This is a space to organise the work of the event promotion group


Meeting notes from April 13th 2019

Promotion group covers - Ticket sales
- Advertising
- Web presence

By 27th April we need to have …

  • Had a look at ticketing software
  • look at setting up a farmhack email for ticketing enquiries (which host??)
    -Need to know a ticket price ( depends on funding group doing some sums)
  • Need to figure out which bank account money goes to from ticket sales ( More input from finance and site group needed)
    -Need to start gathering site info for web presence page - map, transport links, FAQ’s etc

Also need to know whats on the programme for advertising event

The grand plan is to have ticket sales going live on 15th May and advertising will start then too.

Places to advertise
-Land Workers Alliance regional groups ( south east and midlands)
-Facebook, Farmhack uk, uk organic market gardners etc
-London food growing network
-CSA network
-Farmhack network


It seems like it would be good to have a single inbox, and also the capability to forward emails on to peoples personal emails, so they don’t have to remember to check another account.

I’ve used for similar tasks in the past.

We could do it on there? So whatever group of people agree to answer the emails all share a login and send replies from the Zoho web interface. If they want emails forwarded to their personal accounts then that’s an option too

It’s not FOSS, but reliable and at least not Google?


The company my brother used to work for used Zoho and found their services to be often unreliable. I recently heard someone else complaining about them too.

We used for the last Soilhack & had no problems with them.
