If you're not familiar with it already, here's the article from the BBC:
https://www.bbc.com/future/article/20200910-the-remarkable-floating-gardens-of-bangladesh

It looks amazing. Has anyone tried this elsewhere? If so, how'd it go? Have to say, looks like a great use for those bloody invasives.

What are invasives?
Southern Marshes of Iraq have floating communities as do some parts of Africa from memory.

Interesting! Thanks for the link.

Farmers always seem to find a way.
