2016 First Molecule Green / Woolly School Garden

Our Green Molecule / Woolly School Program is a partnership between us and Woolly Pocket, the manufacturer of the famous Woolly Pocket and the Living Planter2. We will be donating a planter system on an annual basis, if we find receptivity to the program. Our first 2016 recipient is Mother Nature Center, in Santa Fe, NM. This focus will be followed by continued work with qualifying schools, after school programs and nonprofits. https://mothernaturecenter.org.

Green Molecule School Program

The program consists of enough breathable, self watering planters to cover up to 50 sq ft of wall or fence. Living Wall Planter 2, Woolly’s best ever living wall system, may easily be brought to a table where young students can conveniently garden individually or in teams. When finished, students simply hang their planters back up in the garden. A Nutrition and Gardening Curriculum is included and makes it easy for any teacher to incorporate the lessons in to the classroom. Teach life sciences, math and geometry, while teaching your students about gardening, food and nutrition. Extra Green- Woolly Pocket makes Living Wall Planter 2 in California from 100% post consumer recycled milk jugs (HDPE 2). Not only does California have strict environmental laws, HDPE 2 is known to be one of the safest plastics for food contact (growing yummy organic edibles) and contains no traceable amounts of Phthalates or BPA.

About Adriana Siso

Adriana Siso launched Molecule Design in September 2010, in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Molecule is the extension of a previous furniture design store that was founded in 2003 as an expansion on a career in fine art, which she pursued for more than 30 years. She brings her talents and uncompromising quest for practical and original products to the world of home furnishings and space design. Molecule carries contemporary industrial designer products that are approachable, remarkable, cutting edge, made to last, life enhancing, sometimes irreverent, and timeless. Later in 2006, Adriana started the process of conceiving the new showroom space that would house the store. Partly sustainable, the structure was built out of 11 recycled 40′ cargo containers. Completed in December 2010, it became the first cargo container building in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Always an explorer, Adriana loves to engage in the realms of discovery and innovation. InContext/Molecule Design's Magazine, launched in December 2011, is the venue where she collects the great stories of creative thinkers, who in our current state of affairs, sometimes under great pressures and working outside the realm of imposed standards, achieve the impossible. It has been known that in times of great crisis, design flourishes. It is Molecule's mission to show this light.
