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.
