Harvesters (50+)

Harvesters is our connect group for people who are 50 years +. Our purpose is to provide a way to connect with the Harvest family, to meet new friends, to study the Bible, and to serve the church and community.   We gather once a month for a fellowship activity like museum visits, movies at the church, train rides, and live theater performances. A meal is usually included with each gathering. 

If you have any questions about Harvesters and/or would like to be included on the Harvesters’ e-mail list, please contact Bob and Mary Stark, Harvesters Coordinators, at 231-564-0677 or  .

Harvesters to Answer the Question: 
Do Bees Have Knees?


The Harvesters are going to find out as they tour the Sarasota Honey Company on Wednesday, November 14 starting at 10 a.m.

Sarasota Honey Company is a family owned and community-driven  apiary company located at 2227 University Parkway, Sarasota. The company has a very special commitment to the special needs community. They are proud that many of their products are made by and benefit people with special needs and promote honey bee awareness through programs and community partners that share their mission.

The Sarasota Honey Company is an urban apiary company with many bee yards scattered around the local area.  Every location produces its own distinct honey flavor that changes with every season.

During the tour, the Harvesters will learn about beekeeping in Florida, benefits and duties of the hive, and what makes Sarasota Honey Company unique.  You will see some of the honey bees in their garden and will have the opportunity to sample a variety of their raw honey accompanied by fruit and cheese pairings.  Company products will also be available for purchase.

Cost for the tour is $10 per person. Space is limited so we encourage you to register early.  Registration deadline is Friday, November 9.

Following the tour, the Harvesters will have lunch at Bob’s Train, a Sarasota diner housed in four train cars of yesteryear. Cost of lunch will be on your own.

If you wish to join the group on this bee-utiful adventure, you can register at welcometoharvest.org/harvesters.  Be sure to check the add-on if you will be joining the group for lunch.
