Harvest Festival 2012

Added Value will be hosting our Seventh Annual Red Hook Harvest Festival this coming Saturday, October 20th. The Farm opens at 10am and will close at 4pm.

As always this event is free and open to the public.

We like to think of our gathering as New York meets New England.

As is our tradition great local chefs from our restaurant partners iCi, The Good Fork, Fort Defiance, Kevin’s and Home/Made will be preparing special treats for festival goers. The pumpkin patch will be the place to be as live music is played by Bomba Yo! Children and families can spend time with Llamas and other animals. Milk Not Jails and the Community Farm Workers Alliance will performing, educating and advocating for a more just and sustainable world.

Of course you can shop at our expanded farmers market for produce grown right here in our neighborhood and by our friends in the region like Wilklow Orchards, John Glebocki, Mark Phillips, Nestor Tello, Bread Alone, and Ronnybrook Dairy.

While you shop you can learn from local organizations that willl be promoting health and wellness, urban agriculture and justice as hundreds of your neighbors surround you in celebration of the power of the sun, the soil, plants and people.

If you haven’t been to the festival, or would just like to get excited about returning to this special community event we have some videos of past festivals:
