A proposal to crowdfund any kind of floating innovation in one of NYC's rivers automatically gets our attention. Joining the inimitable +Pool in this category is a new Kickstarter for an "experimental floating hydroponic garden" in the East River. Sounds fun! The project (also featured on the city's new Kickstarter page) has already reached its $3,000 funding goal, but what will that get us, exactly? The project's creator explains that he will grow plants in pods and then assemble them into a 20-foot by 20-foot garden. And hey, if anyone wants to back the project by the end of the day, $400 will get you your very own hydroponic pod (sadly, not in the East River).
