VISIT GOVERNOR'S ISLAND & SWALE Directly from Atlantic Highlands (and raise a few dollars for NMHA!)
This is an exceptionally rare opportunity to visit Governors Island many interesting, historical and beautiful features by boat directly from Atlantic Highlands. No need to use the Governor's Island ferry!.
Swale is a food forest that is located on a barge at Governor's Island. The project was created by Mary Mattingly, an artist who has worked with NMHA Vice President Rik van Hemmen on a number of other projects and has also presented one of her earlier projects at an NMHA membership meeting in 2011.
On September 11, the Mariner will take the first 40 registered guests to Swale and Governor's Island by bot direct from Atlantic Highlands. Mariner will tie up to Swale and after visiting Swale, guests can also visit Governor's Island.
Note: Since Swale is a high barge, we will have to board the barge from Mariner's top deck. This means that modest agility will be required in negotiating a steep ladder to the top deck.(Similar to climbing an attic fold out stair.)
