Introduction: How to Make a Floating Water Garden Out of Natural Materials!

These instructions tell you how to make a green floating garden.  This project was inspired by the Gowanus Canal which is highly polluted and in need of serious clean up.  This water garden could potentially clean up the canal by filtering the toxins and pollutants out of the water and putting oxygen back into it.  This garden can also be used in other water bodies that need cleaning.  It is made entirely of natural materials and is fairly simple to make.  Project time: about 2 hours.
