Foodway in Governors Island:

Coming Soon


Swale began as a public floating food forest built atop a 5,000 square foot barge in New York City. Swale is building a land-based food forest on Governors Island that will include perennial pollinator gardens, soil remediation sites, apothecary and dye gardens, and a swale and berm with Services for the Underserved.

Swale continues to promote Public Food through advocacy, building edible landscapes, and educational programming, stressing how important it is for more people to be involved in re-addressing food, water, and land as a commons.
