Woolly Pockets in Washington Square Park

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?
