THE LIVING BARGE

2006
With Nicole Kistler and the Environmental Coalition of South Seattle (ECOSS)

We filled the top of an 80’ long industrial tank barge with native ferns, shrubs and tree seedlings, creating a temporary floating island on the river as a way to have a conversation about the river’s history and future. We worked closely with neighborhood residents and organizations for over 2 years to create associated programming and build citywide visibility of the river and momentum for its cleanup. At the end of the monthlong project, volunteers planted the plants from the Living Barge at Cesar Chavez Park in South Park.
