Ballpark Food Gets Healthier With San Francisco Giants Edible Garden

AT&T Park is getting a greener, healthier makeover thanks to an edible garden at the stadium. AT&T Park is getting a greener, healthier makeover thanks to an edible garden at the stadium.

 

Eating at sporting events is an all-American pastime, even to the point of spawning new culinary offshoots like tailgate barbecues. From foot-long hot dogs to cheesy nachos, baseball games are just as notorious for their own breed of food culture. But the San Francisco Giants are looking to curb this association and direct it toward something more positive by giving their stadium a healthy makeover with the installation of an edible garden.

In 2014, AT&T Park will convert its centerfield bleachers into an organic garden that will be used to grow food for an open-air restaurant, concession stands, and a community classroom. The plot will feature soil-based growing methods as well as living walls and hydroponic troughs, and produce a variety of fruits and vegetables from avocados and lemons to strawberries and tomatoes.

The space designated for the new garden is currently being used to grow replacement sod for the stadium.
