The San Francisco Giants will be the first professional sports team to share stadium space with an edible garden. According to the San Francisco Chronicle, President Obama announced the Giants' plan to create the 3,000-square-foot organic garden behind the center-field wall. Called Giants Garden, it is a joint effort between the Major League baseball team and Bon Appetit Management Co., which handles the "high-end concessions" at the stadium. The goal is for the garden to help supply stadium restaurants.

Aside from being a functional garden, Giants Garden will also be home to an outdoor dining area. Early sketches posted by Inside Scoop SF show tables and a bar-like counter. The garden will also host classes for the community, in a nod to Berkeley chef Alice Waters' Edible Schoolyard charity. Giants CEO Larry Baer told the Chronicle: "We really wanted to be able to do something that is not just very San Francisco, but a part of today's world." Giants Garden is slated to open at the start of the 2014 baseball season.
