The Returning: Harvest fundraiser

The Returning

Harvest Newrybar is hosting a fundraiser lunch on Friday 21 February for The Returning, a not-for-profit women’s event.

The fundraiser begins with live music from local acoustic singer/songwriter Olivia Roseberry, followed by a three-course lunch with drinks at Harvest Restaurant, with special guest speakers.

$55 from each ticket will go directly to The Returning, a women’s leadership event that began in 2018 and focuses on women supporting and empowering one another, paying homage to women, community and nature.

According to event founder Ella Bancroft, community and nature should be our top priority. ‘I strongly believe that to regain our power, and our connection to the land and one another, we must reclaim our humanness, and return to our ingenuity on this earth’, she says.

There will be raffle prizes on the day, and conversation with inspiring women from our community, such as Ella Bancroft, artist Danielle Gorogo, and state president of Maternity Choices Australia, Annalee Atia.

20-year-old Louise Albrecht will also be joining the discussion. She has delved into the worlds of weaving, wild foods, hide tanning, processing animals after their death, and using native plants for crafting and personal use.

The ticket price is $150 per person, with $55 from each ticket to go directly to The Returning.

The next Returning event is 7–8 March 2020.

A note from the editorial team

Some of The Echo’s editorial team: journalists Paul Bibby and Aslan Shand, editor Hans Lovejoy, photographer Jeff Dawson and Mandy Nolan

The Echo has never underestimated the intelligence and passion of its readers. In a world of corporate banality and predictability, The Echo has worked hard for more than 30 years to help keep Byron and the north coast unique with quality local journalism and creative ideas. We think this area needs more voices, reasoned analysis and ideas than just those provided by News Corp, lifestyle mags, Facebook groups and corporate newsletters.

The Echo is one hundred per cent locally owned and one hundred per cent independent. As you have probably gathered from what is happening in the media industry, it is not cheap to produce a weekly newspaper and a daily online news service of any quality.

We have always relied entirely on advertising to fund our operations, but often loyal readers who value our local, independent journalism have asked how they could help ensure our survival.

Any support you can provide to The Echo will make an enormous difference. You can make a one-off contribution or a monthly one. With your help, we can continue to support a better informed local community and a healthier democracy for another 30 years.”
