“The 130-foot by 40-foot floating platform is the creation of the non-profit organization Swale, whose founder wants the city to explore growing fruits and vegetables in parks as a way to provide food to residents.

“Going forward we can work towards policy change in the city where right now it’s still illegal to grow public food in public spaces and what we hope is that this can set a good example and we can potentially move forward with starting to change some of those old rules,” said Mary Mattingly, the founder of Swale.

Mattingly says the barge is partly a farm, and partly a public art project, that explores a new way of living. After a year of planning, the first planting occurred this spring. And starting Saturday, the barge will be open to the public. Tours will be given by volunteers from a local environmental activist group.”

Opening: “Food Nostalgia” at Radiator Gallery

Organized by independent curator Amanda McDonald Crowley (the director of Eyebeam from 2005 to 2011), the show includes Cey Adams ironic portrait of the smiling black chef from the packaging for Cream of Wheat, Emilie Baltz’ yummy-looking color photos of junk food and Kira Nam Greene’s luscious watercolors of open cans of Chef Boyardee and packages of Ding Dongs and Ring Dings, which are realistically rendered over brightly patterned fields.
Radiator Gallery, 10-61 Jackson Avenue, Long Island City, Queens 6-9 p.m.
