Our first ever Harvest at Home was a success, and we owe it all to our wonderful community of supporters like you.
When we first came up with the idea to shift our Harvest Supper to a socially-distanced meal kit, we wondered if people would be on board — the answer was an overwhelming yes. Thanks to the support of our community, we raised $21,171 all in support of environmental education and immersive outdoor experiences for youth.
Each of the 153 meal kits sent out included everything needed to create a delicious gourmet meal, grown right here at FortWhyte Farms and the surrounding area. That means you cooked your own farm-to-table meal, guided by FortWhyte Farms Kitchen Coordinator Owen Campbell through a virtual cooking class.
Every ticket holder was entertained with our livestream program. Thanks to Handcraft Creative, you got an inside look at our school programs, FortWhyte Farms, and the Interpretive Centre Renovation, plus front row seats to four musical acts.
Lastly, we introduced our first ever online auction, featuring one-of-a-kind experiences, handcrafted goods, art pieces, and more. Congrats to everyone who won their bid and took home something special, and thank you to all those who donated to the auction:
- Falcon Trails Resort
- Fiber + Wood
- Hilary Druxman
- Joe de Simone
- Kal Barteski
- Living Edge Furnishings
- Nunavut Art Gallery Inc.
- Nyco Rudolph
- PJM Cabinetry (Peter Murdock)
- White Dog Woodworking Design (Eric Gyselman)
- Winnipeg Art Gallery
- Wood Anchor
Of course, none of this would be possible without the incredible support of our trailblazing sponsors who believed in this virtual interpretation of our annual Harvest Supper.
