PRECIPICE with Annie Levin: a conversation with Mary Mattingly

Revolutionary Wellness Talk Radio

Aug 10 2017 • 55 mins

This week we will speak with visual artist Mary Mattingly, whose current project, Swale, is a floating food forest built atop a barge that travels to piers in New York City, offering educational programming and welcoming visitors to harvest herbs, fruits and vegetables for free. Swale strives to strengthen stewardship of public waterways and land, while working to shift policies that will increase the presence of edible perennial landscapes. We will speak with Mary about Swale and her other projects, her commitment to making non-violent art, and her perspective on what these times ask of us in our art-making and our living.
