On 5 August 2017 The Associated Press reported: An old construction barge planted with vegetables, apple trees and fragrant herbs is giving apartment-dwelling New Yorkers a chance to pick something and eat it. Part floating garden, part artwork, and part community organizing project, the barge called Swale is currently docked on a river in the South Bronx and will move to Hudson River Park in lower Manhattan from September 15 to November 15. Global Good News service views this news as a sign of rising positivity in the fields of health and environment, documenting the growth of life-supporting, evolutionary trends.

Swale's creators call it a floating food forest, not a garden or a farm, and there are no neat rows of carrots. The arrangement of trees, shrubs, and ground cover plants can look random but is intended to make good use of the barge's 5,000 square feet (465 square meter).
