5. Swale, A Healthier Barge Bar
Where art meets public service, there is Swale. The installation, if funded, will be a floating forest on a barge with open access to the public. That’s right, any one will be able to come pick his or her own free healthy vegetables with no cost. According to the Swale website, asian persimmon trees, wild arugula, bok choy and more than 80 other species will be featured. There will also be event programming on the barge. Funding is an issue, but Swale is crowdfunding via Indiegogo – support this project if you want to see it happen!
