Go Big or Go Home Large-Scale Activities

Kathryn Howard, PFTP, 500 Foot Char-FruitTree Board 

Think big!  These panelists will talk about how they pull off large scale events.  Clay will provide an overview of our annual glean-a-thon events including planning, partnering with corporate sponsors to secure funding and volunteer teams, providing funding to farmers to cover the costs associated with planting, getting media coverage, team building and competitive strategies and activities for harvest teams, and harvesting and delivery of the crop. Kathryn will share the details of how corporate sponsorship and volunteer engagement allowed Portland Fruit Tree Project
to break a Guinness book record with a 500 foot char”fruit”erie board.
