New Yorkers will be able to explore and assist in a collaborative cultivation process

Swale is a collaborative floating food project that will dock at different piers around New York City's harbor for months at a time. The aim of the project, which is fiscally sponsored through the New York Foundation for the Arts, is to rethink and challenge NYC's connection to our environment.

Built on a 50-foot wide floating platform and constructed from shipping containers from the Port of NY/NJ, Swale features a gangway entrance, walkways and an edible forest garden. The contained platform will have a working ecosystem of healthy food. It was designed and tested with insights from a nautical engineer, landscape architects and the US Coast Guard.
