2015_harvest feastOne of our favourite ways to prepare for the next year is to take a moment to get a sense of all that has happened in the most recent growing season and the life and times of all of the friends and family that contributed in so many amazing ways at OUR ECOVILLAGE in the last year. We do this annually at OUR Harvest Feastival, which occurs this year on October 8th (Saturday). This year Harvest Feastival will also be part of OUR Sustainable Wellness: Sacred Feminine program. As Some of us journey through the medicine wheel, reflecting, composting and redesigning the system of our personal well being, we welcome the community in to celebrate and create together the wholeness of our beings.

It is a time for us to have everyone see what incredible projects, people, and processes have unfolded in the space since we were last together. Please join with us and spread the word to all the folks who have graced this space over the last ten years (or more!) It is time to celebrate and honour all those that have been and all that magically has been created. After a year of incredible healing and triumph over adversity, we at the Village wish to share our huge gratitude with the wider community for all of their thoughts and support this year. In that spirit, we are thrilled to offer this event as a huge collaborative party, massive thank you, and gathering with the community! This event is free for OUR Sustainers, as part of our thanks for their participation in our program.

We will provide main dishes befitting a Harvest Feastival and ask the community to share their favourite sides, potluck-style. The fruits of a pumpkin pie ‘co-opetition’ will round out the menu, along with a no-host bar. We have some fantastic entertainment lined up, and invite you to bring your own as well, however that might look (let us know, so we can sketch out a schedule).
