Our members attended several events in Slovenia at the invitation of representatives of other societies.

After a two-year break due to the epidemic, this year we again successfully prepared the Dried Fruit Festival. In the morning, 52 participants first walked the traditional Hike at Trubar's birth parish from Turjak to Rašica, then through Škocjan to Gradež. This year, due to the rain of the previous days, we adjusted the hike a little so that we would not be knee-deep in mud.

On Saturday, June 25, we gathered again at eight in the evening for the traditional Evening in the Village event. Despite the small number of visitors, we all enjoyed listening to different artists.

On a hot Saturday, June 18, members of our association took part in a professional excursion to the land of hayracks in Šentrupert. The program was prepared by our member and former president Marko Šavli, who is from a nearby village.

An exhibition of paintings by members of the Painter's society Ljubljana and amateur local painters, created at our Celebration of Spring event, ended on 29 May at Turjak Castle.

On April 24, after several years, despite uncertain weather forecasts in Gradež, the members of our association again organized the Celebration of spring (Green George).

After a one-year hiatus due to the epidemic, the Alpe-Adria Green Active Tourism Fair was organized again from 23 to 26 March this year. Our association was also among the exhibitors participating through the Tourist Association of Slovenia. 

On Saturday, February 26, 2022, masks were walking around Gradež again. In the morning, accompanied by a few adults, the youngest sang and danced, and in the afternoon we adults formed a wedding procession.

On Tuesday, February 22, 2022, members from our association who make wooden toothpicks presented this old and almost forgotten rural task on the Planet TV. 

This year, our association set up 160 cribs in hidden corners of Gradež. They were exhibited from 19 December 2021 to 2 January 2022. There were more visitors than last year, when the stricter measures were due to Covid.
