Five Things I learned about the Fenway Garden

  • The Garden was first put in during the 2015 Red Sox season. Prior to that the area was just an unoccupied roof top that wasn't much value to fans because there's no views of the field.
  • Food grown in the garden are distributed throughout the park - mostly for the EMC Club seats and the Vineyard Vines Club.
  • You can reserve space at the Vineyard Vines Club and request some food from the Garden.
  • The Farm is maintained by the Green City Growers.
  • You can view the farm during the game or during tours of the park. When you do tour the park, they will stop at the farm and tell you all about it.
  • By the end of the season, 6,000 pounds of produce harvested from the farm,, not bad from a place that wasn't usable.
