Swale, a Floating Food Forest on a Barge Headed to NYC This Summer

Swale is a “floating food forest” that may be coming to Brooklyn Bridge Park, Governor’s Island and more locations around New York City this summer.

Swale, a collaborative floating food project, is dedicated to rethinking and challenging New York City’s connection to our environment. Built on an 80-foot by 30-foot floating platform, Swale contains a gangway entrance, walkways, and an edible forest garden. Functioning as both a sculpture and a tool, Swale provides free healthy public food at the intersection of public art and service.
