This was Boswyck Farms’ first project ever!
Way back in 2009, we designed hydroponic systems for use on the Waterpod: an educational and residential science barge project started by artist Mary Mattingly. We were connected to the project via Eyebeam Art + Technology Center, and Britta and Rebecca of Window Farms. The Waterpod systems filtered fresh rainwater to fill hydroponic reservoirs.
We coupled this project with hydroponic teaching demonstrations on the Waterpod. The great part about the project is that since it’s on a barge, it can travel and serve as a hydroponic teaching tool in a variety of locations — wherever the Waterpod docks.
