Wishing you a Happy and Healthy Harvest 2021
A harvest festival is an annual celebration that occurs around the time of the main harvest of a given region. Given the differences in climate and crops around the world, harvest festivals can be found at various times at different places. Harvest festivals typically feature feasting, both family and public, with foods that are drawn from crops that come to maturity around the time of the festival. Ample food and freedom from the necessity to work in the fields are two central features of harvest festivals: eating, merriment, contests, music, and romance are common features of harvest festivals around the world.
We at York Road Project are grateful to the local churches/places of worship, schools, community groups and local businesses for their continued support each and every harvest. This year we have taken the opportunity to provide a list of items needed in efforts to reduce waste, making the most of the new spaces in which our services are operating from.
