The Waterpod Project

It’s always been our fantasy to leave civilization behind and go
sailing on a self-sustaining farm boat where we can live in harmony
with the environment and make art. That’s why as soon as this issue
hits stands, we’re dropping everything and joining Mary Mattingly and
her rag-tag posse of artists, designers, farmers and engineers aboard
the Waterpod Project. After three years of planning, designing,
building and tweaking, the retro-fitted barge, functional farm,
exhibition space and sustainable artists’ community is currently on its
summer-long maiden voyage around the five boroughs. We’re planning to
stow away on the Waterpod sometime between August 4 and 17, when it’s
moored at Brooklyn Bridge Park.

  • Nice article I interned for an eco-friendly auction/swap site . We participated in the Go Green Expo in April (in the Hilton Hotel ) , wish our website would have been nominated .

  • Time’s Up rocks! I personally volunteer with this group and it’s amazing how much they get done with only volunteers and a very small budget. You can truly see the positive changes all over the city. Time’s Up definitely deserves this award after all of it’s long hard work and it’s nice to see they are finally being recognized. Thank you Time’s Up for making my New York City a more environmentally friendly place.

  • Check out my blog , I’m a teen trying to help the world and inform myself and others of the importance that being green can do .
    I think it’s awesome that people are trying to do the right thing in the green scene .
