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.
