Join us Saturday August 19th from 4-7pm for cocktails and music with movers, shakers, and cooperators aboard SWALE, New York City’s first ever floating food forest.
We’ve got a great opportunity to spend some quality time on the water with friends and we want you to be there.
You’ll have a chance to mix and mingle in about as unique a space as you can get while supporting the cutting edge work of Green Worker Cooperatives to grow waves upon waves of people of color-led worker cooperatives that help build a green and democratic economy. We love pushing the envelope. And we love sharing space with others that push the envelope as well. That’s why we love Swale.
So join us for a chance to soak in all this cutting edge work, meet our cooperatives pushing the envelopes in their own industries, taste the mouth-watering delicacies of our co-ops, and toast with cocktails in the name of a new economy.

Swale is an experiment designed to push the envelope on growing food in public space. It’s a floating forest built atop a barge and designed to creating a wild plant foraging experience for anyone. Swale is packed with all kinds of herbs, fruits, and vegetables...all for visitors to pick and taste.
It’s currently docked at Concrete Plant Park, a former concrete plant turned through community action into a beautiful +7 acre park on the west bank of the Bronx River, itself a river that’s undergone a resurgence of new life and activity thanks to years of local community organizing.
We’re thankful to our friends at Youth Ministries for Peace, long-time force of nature pushing the envelope themselves to revive the Bronx River and its surrounding communities, for making Swale available to us for this beautiful evening.
