Bioremediating floating gardens for boats
Bioremediating floating gardens designed to be installed on boats created in collaboration with the London boat community addressing the rising water pollution of the canals in the United Kingdom. Boat BioLogs are natural regenerative tools converting boats, a rising source of canal water pollution, into the solution to the problem. Incentivising boaters with the luxury of a private garden, the project motivates them to install it and inspires dialogue in celebration of nature's self-healing properties.
