Chickens and dogs are Harvest's current resident animals. The free-range chickens provide eggs for our baking program while the dogs roam the yard and work centre for people to interact with.
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.
