Below the BQE, in a barren industrialized part of Brooklyn, was docked the Waterpod...
Do chickens get seasick? Does sea air help or hinder the tomatoes? If you get a chance to visit the Waterpod – 3,000 square foot living 'art-installation' barge – could you do me a favor and ask these questions? A combination of heat and a weekend's worth of permaculture lessons fried my noodle when I went to visit the operation on the Brooklyn waterfront last Sunday.
Here are some things to look forward to on your visit (they're currently docked in Staten Island):
Bucky, eat your heart out.
Hey, your squash is hanging out!
These ladies are just minding their own business.
Grey water filtration system - awesome!
There shouldn't be a mutiny on this bounty. (Ouch!)
Looks like a healthy tomato crop - no scurvy here
Some worthy shipmates saving amaranth seeds
Inside the living room - it was pretty cozy I'll have to admit
Get the poop on the Waterpod
And some press on NY Times
