Mini Library Vertical Garden for Kids

Kids love their new Tiny Library in San Francisco’s Inner Richmond Neighborhood. This little treasure was conceived by landscape architect, Alec Hawley and crafted by Richard Walker. Florafelt Vertical Garden 4-Pocket Planters create little living walls on each side.

The project was a community led effort to improve our neighborhood and make space for our youngest and most curious residents. It not only serves as a Little Free Library, but also as a teaching tool and a sensory and edible garden for the entire Inner Richmond neighborhood.

“It would not have been nearly as unique or feel as warm without the Florafelt pockets and plants.”
