For the second year in a row, we invited our community to join us in looking back at everything we’ve accomplished this year.

New Harvest held our second annual year-in-review call, a tradition started last year to catch up with donors and community members and field questions over Zoom. Thank you to all 80+ community members who zoomed in from around the world, from New Zealand to Budapest!
