Start a Harvest Exchange Celebration

9 tips on how to start a new tradition

| September/October 2005

Start a tradition that will last for years. Here's how.

1. Start small and expect to grow. Friends will want to invite other friends who share a love of harvest. The more people, the more interest and excitement.

2. Decide if you’d like to host or share hosting. You can begin by hosting the first gathering and see how it goes. Perhaps others in your group would like to do the honors next time.

3. Provide a simple meal. Cook it all yourself or make it easier with potluck.

4. Establish a seasonally appropriate date and invite people in enough time so they can prepare. It’s lovely if you can exchange during the late-harvest bounty when there are some last peppers and tomatoes in the garden and apples, persimmons, or nuts to share.

5. Bring enough to exchange with everyone. If you don’t exchange everything, give it away.
