Who:

Harvest Gathering is run by a volunteer committee, committed to bringing friends, naturalists, and earth based skills workers together to celebrate the changing seasons, and to spend time learning from each other.

What:

A family oriented weekend of learning new things, socializing with like-minded people, and enjoying nature at it's best. A full spectrum of 1-3 hour workshops will be offered over the weekend all run by participants.

Where:

Harvest Gathering was originally going to occur throughout Central Ontario. We however found a home in our very first year, and we wouldn't think of going anywhere else. Our gatherings occur on the same land, outside of Lindsay, Ontario every year (about an hour's drive North East of Toronto). When you register you will be sent full set of travelling directions. People come from all over Canada to this event, so car pooling is highly recommended, and you can connect on our Facebook Event Page to connect with others!

When:

The gathering will start in the Evening on Thursday, However, we can always use help setting up, so people arriving early are a wonderful benefit (we ask no one arrive before 2pm though). Events run until Sunday Evening. The opening fire starts promptly on FRIDAY at 6:30pm. We highly recommend trying to make the entire weekend and being there by Friday night at the latest. This really helps us all come together as a unified village, however if this is not possible for you, then we understand.

Why:

Very similar in design to our friends at the Headwaters Gathering, the Harvest Gathering was created to allow those who are in Central East/Eastern Ontario to be stewards in their own area, and without having to travel. Harvest gathering recognizes the need for us to connect with nature during our changing seasons, and that there are not many outlets for us to share our traditional information and skill sets with each other. This is why the word "Community" is so often applied to this organization. We are fostering those connections, and as a result, we are all stronger and more empowered because of it. As a community, we learn and grow together, throughout the year, and we bring the skills and knowledge we've gained with us to share, and strengthen us all.

How to Register:

REGISTRATION FOR 2019 Opens Shortly! Check back often for updates. Registration is important for insurance liability, ensuring allergies/medical info is kept accessible, and to get an accurate count of participants.

Cost:

There are always opportunities to barter and trade at Harvest Gathering, so bringing a little extra money is always a good idea (though bringing something to trade is even better).

We require your donations to purchase and maintain group equipment, including water tanks, pots/pans, firewood, use of land, supplies for stewardship project etc. Fee will is set at $40/person, for the entire weekend of activities. Your food, shelter, and personal comforts are not included. We also ask participants to contribute towards our pot luck dinner we have on Saturday. Some workshops may have a cost to cover materials; such workshop costs will be specified on the schedule. If you are able bodied, you are also expected to help with camp chores such as: camp clean up, splitting firewood, setting up washing stations, cleaning outhouses, etc. You will be sign up for a work crew upon registration.
