Our day program crew works diligently on light industrial projects in the work centre year-round to provide a number of products and services to the community.
During the spring and summer months, Harvesters spend many hours in the greenhouse, garden and saskatoon berry orchard. Everything we grow is organic!
Goats and chickens are Harvest's current resident animals. The free-range chickens provide eggs for our baking program while the goats are in the yard for people to stop and watch as they play around.
Participants have the option to engage in a short devotional and prayer time after lunch each day. On Friday afternoon, the workcenter takes time to rest, sing worship music, and have a devotional.
Participants that live on their own or aspire to live on their own have the option of joining the bi-weekly cooking class. This class teaches kitchen and food preparation safety while providing a tasty lunch!
Who doesn't love a sweet treat? Participants expressing interest in the baking program whip up snacks for coffee time on a rotating monthly schedule.
Once a month participants step away from the work program to engage recreationally in the community. Outings include swimming, going to a movie, visiting the museum and science center, and tobogganing in the winter.
Harvest prepares a hot lunch for all participants and staff once a month. Most of these meals incorporate produce from the garden!
Harvest Community Inc. maintains a couple of bee hives throughout the summer months. The bees help pollenate our plants and offer a delicious treat! Participants partake in spinning the honey and preparing it to be sold.
Once a year Day Program participants have the option to travel to Deschambault Lake with us and enjoy a week of recreational camping and fishing.
