Miguel Nelson is a man on a mission. “I love plants. I think plants are the coolest. I feel like civilization would be a better place if people spent a little more time with plants,” says the artist-turned-entrepreneur.

To help people have fun with plants, Miguel created Woolly Pocket , a low-maintenance modular garden that can hang on walls or fences. The modules — or pockets — can be used singly or together to create everything from a windowsill garden to a vast living wall.

The original Woolly Pockets are crafted from recycled plastic that is pressed into “woolly” felt — hence the name. This fall, the company introduced a new Living Wall Planter made from recycled milk jugs.

Kids Get in On the Fun

Miguel’s vision isn’t limited to helping grown-ups play with plants. He wants to make plants more accessible to kids too. Enter the Woolly School Garden kit, which provides materials to create a flourishing school garden — pockets, hardware, compost tea and organic seeds to grow vegetables, herbs, fruits and edible flowers.

“Teachers love the flexibility,” Miguel explains, because the pockets are portable and can hang on almost anything, from chain link fence to an interior wall. That makes Woolly Pockets especially great for schools where space is limited.

“There was a school in New York with a rooftop playground surrounded by a chain link fence. They put their Woolly Pocket garden up on that fence, and it didn’t take up precious playground space.”

Schools interested in building Woolly School Gardens or a traditional garden can apply for a grant through the Whole Kids Foundation®’s School Garden Grant program, which provides a $2,000 monetary grant to a K-12 school, or a non-profit working in partnership with a K-12 school, to support a new or existing edible garden on school grounds.
