Opened by the chair of GKA, Andrew Chalk, GKA Harvest provided the chance to hear and share experiences GKA has with GK communities and their work within an Australian context. This included presentations about the:
* inaugural GKA Study Tour (Dr Elaine Laforteza)
* Bayani Challenge (Curtis Alejo)
* Dubbo trips to connect with the Men's Shed and the Apollo Centre (Cat Chan & Carla Cuanan),
* CSI (Chris Davidson & Irene Mayo) and
* GKAGAT (GKA Great Adventure Tour) 2014 (Ed Davila & Ingrid Kristiansen).
This year's Harvest also included a sharing by Jarred Hodges, the Philippine Volcanoes Rugby Union Team Coach, about his team's experience building for GK. Many thanks to James Palomo who organised Harvest 2013, as well as the band of committed volunteers who set up, packed up, brought delicious food, and presented with passion, humour and intelligence. Thank you also to the hosts, Ben Shafilbeigh and Xandria Cortez and Cat Chan and Jung Gee Ko (Ferdy) for their amazing martial arts skit! Many thanks also to those who braved the rainy weather to hear about GKA and GK. Your support is very much appreciated. Maraming salamat! Thank you very much!
