San Francisco Giants to plant first edible garden at U.S. ballpark

President Obama joked on Monday that “It’s OK to have a hot dog once in a while” after announcing that the first edible garden at a “major American sports facility” will open next season at AT&T Park in San Francisco.

“With rows of kale and strawberries and eggplant, the Giants are going to help encourage local youth to eat healthy — even at the ballpark,” Obama said during a White House ceremony honoring the San Francisco Giants as 2012 World Champions.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports that the 3,000-square-foot organic garden will be planted behind center field and will include hydroponic troughs, concrete planters and green trellises with vegetables, herbs, flowers and fruit. The design is a collaboration between EDG Interior Architecture & Design and Blasen Landscape Architecture, which is sharing more renderings of the plans with L.A. at Home. We’ll have that for you in a follow-up post.

The project, called Giants Garden, is a partnership between the Giants and Bon Appetit Management Co., which operates the some concessions in the stadium.

“There’s so much product we can grow, it’s unbelievable,” Bon Appetit founder and President Fedele Bauccio told the Chronicle, citing kale, strawberries, broccolini, citrus and huckleberry. “The idea would be for people to sit there and watch the game and eat food from the garden.”

In a region that is known for its forward-thinking environmental programs — celebrity chef Alice Waters of Berkeley started the Edible Schoolyard program that has been implemented in Los Angeles — it is not surprising that the garden will be used as an open-air classroom in the off-season.
