Screenshots NY1 - Watch the video
NY1 visited the Waterpod now berthed at Staten Island and interviewed artist/founder Mary Mattingly. Among the green environmental systems mentioned were the sub-irrigation planters (SIPs) supplied by the Center for Urban Greenscaping (CuGreen).
"Nothing goes to waste on the Waterpod with rainwater being used for drinking, for washing, and for the particularly prolific sub-irrigation system that helps the garden grow."
The Waterpod is now berthed in Staten Island where it will be until August 31. Visit the Waterpod tomorrow and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tomorrow the Waterpod will be part of the Atlantic Salt Maritime Festival from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Take the Staten Island Ferry to the St. George terminal and then the S90/S40 bus to Richmond Terrace/Lafayette Avenue stop.
I plan to be on board most of the weekend and will be pleased to meet you and answer any questions you may have about modern sub-irrigation planter (SIP) systems.
