Can we say: a year/month/week of activity to express all of the activities happened in a particular time?

I think a year/month/week of doing something may have the same function.

But the meaning may change sometimes:

Like a year of harvesting.(it may refer to a particular time, not harvesting), Am I right?

    I'm not quite sure what you mean by "it may refer to a particular time, not harvesting". Can you clarify? But in general, yes, you can use that phrasing. For example, "It was a year of great flooding in Slobovia" can mean that there was a lot of flooding during that year, not necessarily that Slobovia was flooded for the entire year.
