This past Thursday, Earth Day, Woolly Pockets installed a giant (40’X8’) “Living Green Wall” of edible plants and lush Native New York plant species was installed on the Southern plaza of Union Square. The project was in conjunction with New York Restoration project for the 40th anniversary of Earth Day.

Starting in the morning, Miguel from Woolly Pockets and a team from New York Restoration Project planted the 400 Woolly Pockets and hung them on this remarkable wall. Miguel is doing this to help kick off the NYC Grows festival, but more importantly to spread the word about his Woolly Pocket School Program (there are over 20 in LA already and he wants to start building them in New York soon).

The installation will remain intact this weekend so if you’re in NYC go take a look!
