    Selling Online: REKO Rings - Connecting Producers with Consumers on Facebook (FSFS206)

    Selling Online: REKO Rings - Connecting Producers with Consumers on Facebook (FSFS206)

    "How does a REKO-ring work?
    The ring is based on a closed Facebook group. The producer and consumer who want to take part apply for membership in the group he or she likes. Administrators, often a small group of consumers, approve the application from serious people and thereafter trade can begin. Normally delivery occurs every or every other week, depending on the size of the group. Delivery times are more often shorter than an hour, or producers congregate and the consumers can collect their orders from a number of producers at the same time. A producer writes a post about their product and availability on Facebook and the consumers make orders by comments directly under the post. The producers also write how they require payment." Source

Customer Reviews

Avidlostener7 ,

Really excellent podcast

I love listening to this while I potter around my fruit and vegetable garden in the Australian suburbs. Lots of fascinating and inspiring stories and practical advice - great work Diego!

Raginhighlander ,

High quality podcast

Diego and his guests are dedicated to sharing practical knowledge pertaining to productive, regenerative agriculture. Fresh and far removed from the annoying activist types that think they represent the permaculture movement, Diego and his sphere of influencers deliver a very relevant message to those interested in securing clean and nutritious food supplies for themselves, their communities and their respective nations. Inspiring stuff.

Aussie heathen ,

Epic you know what

All round great podcast,
So much information most episodes need multiple listenings just to scratch the surface.
Grass fed life has changed my out look for my farm, thank you so very much.
