Celebrating youth, food and community with Harvest at Home

Posted on October 4, 2021

Our second annual Harvest at Home was a success, and we owe it all to our wonderful community of supporters like you.

Thanks to the support of our community, we raised nearly $30,000 all in support of sustainable agriculture, social enterprise and hands-on employment training for youth.

Thank you!

Each of the 200 meal kits sent out included everything needed to create a delicious gourmet meal, grown right here at FortWhyte Farms and the surrounding area.

Next, countless community members joined in our cause with gifts. Reusable cutlery sets and tumblers from CBC, treats from Utoffeea and Decadence Chocolates, a fall scented candle from Farmer’s Son Co., and so much more filled your reusable cooler bags to the brim.

Every ticket holder was entertained with our livestream program. Thanks to Handcraft Creative, you got an inside look at our FortWhyte Farms, the new Ben + Rose Puchniak Woodworking Studio, plus front row seats to Sierra Noble.

Lastly, our online auction featured one-of-a-kind experiences, handcrafted goods, art pieces, and more. Congrats to everyone who won their bid and took home something special!

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:
