We're happy to announce the Farm, a unique garden on the south end of the Eastside Club near the right field flagpoles, debuting this season. Dozens of large planters will grow an assortment of produce and flowers, surrounded by picnic benches. pic.twitter.com/RykNxbYhlT
Shouts to the Oakland A's- this announcement is Dope! Not only are the A's bringing some green healthy options to the Coliseum but they are teaming up with a local non-profit to make it happen! The A's have announced they're adding another improvement to the coliseum by partnering with the awesome East Oakland organization Acta Non Verba that works to create healthy outdoor spaces for the community to enjoy. Acta Non Verba works with youth and this project will bring an actual FARM, or unique garden to the coliseum where flowers and produce will be grown that Acta Non Verba can sell and put towards higher education for the students in their program along with funding some of their after school programming. Congrats to the A's and Acta Non Verba on a great partnership that will be a dope addition to the community on a number of levels! The flourishing garden will also be surrounded by picnic benches so it will be a perfect spot to enjoy while en route to enjoy a game or event at the coliseum!
