Brooklyn! Fall! Brews! Bounty! Yes, its that time of year again. The Yard is once again hosting a fall-themed celebration of Gowanus proportions.
Last year was an incredible success – over 1,000 people joined us at the banks of the canal to enjoy farm fresh food, live music, local vendors, pumpkin carving contests, pony rides, delicious brews and other triumphs of sustainable urban living.
This year, proceeds from the Gowanus Harvest Festival will be donated to Just Food.
So join us and enjoy the wonders of Autumn on Brooklyn’s most …charismatic… waterfront.

A small temporary park that offered a preview of one of the state's most highly contested projects – the Brooklyn Bridge Park -- was a surprise summer hit with 192,675 people visiting from around the world.
The 26,000-square-foot park at Pier 1 in Brooklyn Heights saw visitors from 440 different ZIP codes during a 13-week run that ended Sunday to make way for construction of the larger, 85-acre park project, according to data released yesterday.
The temporary park was a major draw for out-of-towners with 79 percent coming from outside the immediate area of Brooklyn Heights, Cobble Hill and DUMBO.
In fact, 25 percent of all visitors came from 52 different countries, and another 17 percent came from outside New York City.
"I think this will put an end to debate that Brooklyn Bridge Park is nothing but a fancy back yard for the rich," said Mariana Koval, president of the waterfront park's conservancy.
Koval was referring to criticism of a feature of the park plan - luxury high-rise condos to be built in the park to offset maintenance costs.
The temporary park featured a massive sandbox, sprinklers and games for children, wine and beer, food and spectacular New York Harbor views -- including the temporary waterfalls display.
