Because neither Brooklyn nor Portland have major league baseball teams, the it has fallen on San Francisco to install an organic garden in their ballpark. Slated to open next season at AT&T Park, the large vegetable garden will supply produce for some of the parks' concessions and serve as an open-air dining area and community classroom. The ambitious project, dubbed the Giants Garden, calls for a 3,000-square-foot organic garden to be planted behind the center-field wall, a space between the left- and right-field bleachers that is now mostly concrete and the area where replacement sod is grown. The centerfield-to-table project is a partnership between the Giants and Bon Appetit Management Co., which has operated the high-end concessions in the field and club levels and suites since the ballpark opened in 2000.
