Gatherer Lifetime Wishes: none Gatherers always catch Insects, which can usually escape. They will plant at higher quality when using gardening - the quality of a seed goes up a few levels from this alone, pairing very well with Green Thumb. They additionally find better quality space rocks than other Sims and will have rocks and gems returned with a higher value when cutting and smelting them.
Your Sim is more successful at catching bugs and harvesting plants.
Seeds planted by your Sim produce a higher quality crop.
When your Sim has ore smelted or gems cut, the results are generally more favorable.

Money trees conflict with the gatherer trait and so, you have to either use a sim that doesn't have this trait, or don't have this trait at all when you harvest the money trees...
Apparently, the gatherer trait includes an ability to get random money tree seeds while harvesting the money trees (so a gatherer fairy becomes a money maker extraordinaire!), but the money tree itself wasn't updated to handle this added functionality. Whenever your gatherer harvests a money tree, if it hits what should be the jackpot, the sim instead just pops away from the tree and the tree sticks in Harvest state, with no Harvest or Tend interaction offered on the menu. If you use Twallan's Debug Enabler, you can manually shift the tree into the next life state (mature) and they'll be fine, but short of that, there's nothing to do once it's frozen but to dispose of the tree.
I created a sim with the following traits: Gatherer, Natural Cook, Green Thumb, Love The Outdoors and Angler. The lot I play with this sim spawns at least 12 seeds (including the Money Tree) and small plants everyday. I have the SwiftGro Gardening Station on this lot also and the sim mastered the Gardening skill in about 15 days! Patrick
