We are Farming on the Roof of Fenway Park!

Our Farm. April.

We are incredibly excited to announce the opening of Fenway Farms, a 5,000 square foot vegetable farm on the roof of America’s most beloved ballpark! Installed and launched for opening day of the 2015 season, Fenway Farms provides fresh, organically grown vegetables and fruit to Red Sox fans dining at Fenway Park’s EMC Club restaurant.

This project is a joint effort with our partners at Recover Green Roofs, who we worked with to launch the half-acre rooftop farm at Whole Foods Lynnfield. This baseball season, while you’re watching the Sox nab a win, you might also catch a glimpse of our farmers working or harvesting fresh produce. The Green City Growers team is thrilled to be the Red Sox’ Other Farm Team!
