What is partnering?
How is partnering accomplished?
PNW Gleaning Conference participants were interested in forming a coalition/association to break up tasks, find leaders, identify funding (USDA Community Food Projects, etc.) and build movement. Potential topics of interest could include food safety, harvesting, outreach/marketing and volunteer recruitment. Other helpful tools identified could be a website, conference list, gleaning directory, how-to guides and map of regional produce recovery efforts.
