113. Lisa Manning on Hosting RV Travelers on Your Farm with Harvest Hosts
Most of us know that farms can be very scenic, serene, and fun! Have you ever considered monetizing that atmosphere to recharge the batteries of travel-worn RVers?
This week, Lisa Manning, head of member success, joins us to talk about what she and Harvest Hosts do for the community. Harvest Hosts’ goal is to change the way RVers adventure. They offer a truly unique way for RVers to meet other travelers, stay overnight in gorgeous settings, and create memories that can’t be made in a retail parking lot. Join us today to learn all about how Lisa and Harvest Hosts have made farm serenity a revitalizing attraction!
