HARVEST’S ‘NEW NORMAL’ 

Some will have noticed they haven’t heard from us over the last year. Some will have noted that their annual subscription for membership didn’t arrive when expected, and hasn’t yet.

In 2019 the drought was in full swing. Then Black Summer followed with devastating fires, and just so we remained alert, COVID arrived. In the face of all this, your board decided to suspend renewals until such time as we could see things were settling down, and what the 'new normal' would look like. For all members it’s been more than a year since we invoiced for memberships.

COVID CANNED HARVEST’S BIRTHDAY PARTY and TASTE 

2020 was Harvest’s 20th birthday year. We had big plans to celebrate its legacy and longevity. This included a bigger and better ‘Taste The Hawkesbury’ exposition at the Hawkesbury Show of 2020, which aligned exactly with Hawkesbury Harvest’s anniversary of formation in early May, 2000. Alas, that was canned too.
