Swale Comes to Brooklyn Army Terminal, Sunset Park
Floating Food Forest, Swale is confirmed to travel to Brooklyn Army Terminal (BAT), Sunset Park from May – July, 2018. The social-engaged public artwork, created by artist Mary Mattingly, will bring educational programming to the local Brooklyn community, families and children. Built on a 130 x 40 FT barge, Swale contains 5,000 SQ FT of edible perennial garden and presents opportunities for New Yorkers to get involved in building ecological resilience through promoting food as a public commons. While at BAT, Swale will activate the Sunset Park waterfront and serve the surrounding community, as a platform for local engagement around social, physical and environmental wellness. Swale will be FREE and open to the public on weekends, and by appointment for school groups during the week. During the weekend hours, visitors can come aboard the barge and harvest herbs, fruits and vegetables, with guidance from the onboard staff members. ?In addition to their open hours, Swale will host regular public programs around topics of wellness, public arts & environmental activism and collaborate with local civic organizations and serve as a site for community-based cultural events. BAT is an innovative industrial campus in Sunset Park, and is honored to be the sole location for Swale in 2018.
