If you’re familiar with baseball or live in the Pacific Northwest, you know Safeco Field is home to the Mariners, their fans and “all the trappings of an American sporting event.”
What you may not know is that they now have a 450 square foot urban garden beneath the batter’s eye against a dark backdrop.
“Previously home to evergreen trees (removed, too distracting), flowers (often unattended), the raised bed now plays host to a variety of long-season plants, including peppers, basil, tomatoes, beans, chard and parsely, among other things.”
“The project is exciting because everyone at the Mariners organization is very dedicated to its success,” McCrate says. “Our work is most enjoyable when our clients and partners are eager to learn, enthusiastic and genuinely appreciative of the harvests that come from the garden. At the stadium, everyone seems to be rooting for the crops.”
