    Woolly pockets are flexible, breathable, and modular gardening containers available in two styles: those designed to be placed on horizontal surfaces, and those designed to be hung on walls for vertical gardening. Woolly Pockets can be used both indoors and out; they have built-in moisture barriers to help protect furniture, and they’re equally at home outside in the elements. They’re perfect for creating urban gardens where you have space to garden but no land to garden in. Woolly Pockets are lightweight and can be folded flat, which makes them very easy to use, move, and store just about anywhere.

    Thanks for the positive feedback but as the CEO and President I wanted to clairify the misquote. In fact we DO NOT use our aluminum for crop walls due to the exact reasons stated. These walls were constructed from stainless steel. Please dont fret we are on the ball with our technology but thank you for your concerns…..I always make myself available and can be reached at george@agreenroof.com
    Also vist http://www.greenroofs.com to read my article about vertical gardening…….

    I agree with EarthSmile, that aluminum in the food was my first concern. But aside from that, the concept is totally awesome, and makes me wants a house with growing walls!

    Interesting ! Great idea… but aluminum salts absorbed by our bodies are linked to aluminum deposits in our brains, which are believed to be a factor in Alzheimer’s disease. So how about using another, less reactive, metal ? Also, toss the Aluminum cookware folks. Do yourselves a favor.
