Woolly School Gardens Around the World: New York

Woolly_Blog_SchoolGarden_NY

This week we wanted to share an inspiring story of our Woolly School Garden in action in New York.

40 WALLY 1 pockets were installed at PS206 on the chainlink of the school yard. (They have a LOTTA chainlink!) The students planted the pockets with edibles like: kale, spinach, rainbow chard, broccoli, scallions, red cabbage and mesclun salad greens as well as herbs like thyme, sage, parsley and mint!

The garden is watered lovingly by 43 third graders in our APPLE SEED program. It is also watered almost every other day by students receiving occupational therapy. The on-site occupational therapist says the pockets are perfect for sequencing, physical and communication activities. The plants LOVE the water and the garden is THRIVING. I wish you could see it in person.

The garden at PS 206 is a three headed dragon. One partner is TURBANA, a banana and tropical fruit importer, they have generously supported the project. The second partner is KEEN: Kids Enjoy Exercise Now. KEEN’s  goal is for the children to get exercise outside and to learn about healthy foods.  www.keennewyork.org  KEEN New York won an online Facebook challenge and wanted to build a garden in a public school. KEEN was looking for a school with a high population of Special needs children. The Horticultural Society of New York is the project’s installation and education partner. Our colleague Miriam Campos was contacted to develop the garden at PS 206—as school with a 40% of their students on the autism spectrum. Our Hort team recognized that we needed to capitalize on that urban chainlink and MAKE IT GROW!!! So thank you WOOLLY POCKET. You make edibles grow in amazing places with amazing people.

This week’s Woolly Around the World post comes from Canada and the design team of Vertical Oxygen.

They utilized our wally threes for a temporary living wall they built for a local institute of technology for an awards night (top photo) and the wally one for a 75 foot living wall in the oil camp (bottom photo).

We were excited to receive this inspiring image of Woollys on Gold Street in San Francisco. It comes from Branch Creative, the super talented group that helped us create Living Wall Planter 2.

It’s hard to see, but Branch actually used all three colors (green, white and gray) of Living Wall Planter 2s to make their living wall. They did a plantastic job filling, thrilling and spilling with a variety of ferns, spider plants and pothos.

This week’s customer photo inspiration comes from Anaheim, CA. A wide variety of succulents, were planted in our Living Wall Planters.

The planter boxes were installed to add some kind of greenery to an other wise fully concreted patio. It livens up the new special event center in Anaheim, now called The Colony House.
