Located behind the centerfield wall, just underneath the scoreboard, lives a 4,320 square-foot edible garden that offers a bounty of fruits, vegetables, greens and flowers that are harvested at peak ripeness year round. Blueberries, strawberries, avocados, tomatoes, peppers, squash, lettuces, lemons, kale and more are picked fresh and served in the healthy menu offerings of the two bistros located inside the garden, Hearth Table and Garden Table.
The Garden at AT&T Park serves as a unique gathering place and one-of-a-kind food experience for fans to enjoy while cheering on the 2014 World Series Champion Giants. In addition, the Garden serves as an outdoor classroom that encourages children to live healthier, more active lives.
Through hands-on activities, children learn about the importance of healthy eating, see first-hand where food comes from and how it grows, and roll up their sleeves for cooking classes alongside Bay Area chefs.
"The San Francisco Giants are dedicated to enriching our community through innovation and excellence on and off the field. The Garden is one of the many ways we've strived to accomplish that. We have partnered with Bon Appétit Management Company to create a special place in the ballpark for our community to enjoy together and for our children to learn," said Larry Baer, Giants President and CEO Larry Baer.
"For a long time, I've wanted to help connect children and our larger community directly to the origins of their food and to inspire them to make healthy and responsible food choices," said Fedele Bauccio, CEO and cofounder of Bon Appétit Management Company. "This particular project has been a dream of mine and I am so proud to see it finally blooming."

The Giants believe that fresh, delicious food is a powerful teaching tool. Through the outdoor culinary education program, children develop a stronger understanding of gardens, nutrition, and cooking and the overarching connection between what they eat and their health and wellbeing.
