    My son on a floating garden

    by herzog63 Written Apr 21, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Here you can see my son standing on one of the floating gardens. This is built over 20 feet of water. They use layers of weeds and mud to build it and it is very fertile! When you stand on it you can feel it slowly sink. With my weight I went up to my knees before it stopped sinking!

    No pavement needed for these driveways

    by herzog63 Written Apr 20, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: The people that live in these watery villages don't have to deal with paving the driveway! They have to make sure their driveway doesn't get filled in with debri.
