1:34 A floating food forest

New Yorkers will soon be able to wander aboard an 80 foot food barge when it docks along the city's rivers, to harvest blueberries, chard and whatever else is growing. 

It's effectively a community garden - but it can't happen on land because of a century old ordinance that forbids the picking or foraging for food on public land in New York city.

Ashawnta Jackson is one of the team working on the garden, which will be called Swale
