Another reason to love Washington Square Park is the Woolly Pocket planters in the renovated playground. (The latter is the subject of a future post.) I think the Woolly product used in the playground is a School Garden and not a Wally. Woolly Pocket also makes the Meadow and Islands. A web search revealed that City-as Farmer planted tomato, okra, carrot, and other vegetables on Sunday, May 15, 2011.
I wonder who will care for this garden? Who is allowed to harvest the produce?
This is not the first use of a Woolly Pocket product in a park. wrote about the garden installed at William F. Passannante Ballfield at Houston and Sixth Avenue during the summer of 2010.
Have you read our post about the filming of a Sesame Street segment in the park?
