Plans for an edible garden behind center field at AT&T Park have recently been made. At 3,000 square feet the garden will essentially be a small farm growing avocados, strawberries, herbs, edible flowers, tomatoes, huckleberries, lemons, and more. The organic produce will be used to supply concession stands throughout the ballpark, as well as an open-air restaurant/community classroom that will be located within or near the garden. Known simply as Giants Garden, it will be built in an area that is currently used to grow replacement sod for the field. Construction of the garden will begin in the offseason, with hopes of having it ready for opening day, 2014.
