Growing better together
Planting new seeds for sustainability in our community
There’s something new growing at Chase Field. It’s called D-backs GREENS garden, a new community garden sponsored by UnitedHealthcare and tended with the help of UnitedHealthcare volunteers.
Fans and the greater community are invited to D-backs GREENS garden to dig into the idea of backyard gardening as a way to eat healthier and bring more fresh produce to the table. Visitors are welcome to explore the garden and learn:
- How gardening can help keep food on the table for people experiencing food insecurity.
- How sustainable gardens can help improve health and well-being by putting fresh foods in reach for more people.
- Simple ways to start a garden at home.
- Ways to volunteer and add another green thumb to the garden.
Everyone can get a taste of the fruits and veggies of the garden too. Freshly-picked produce is used in Chase Field concessions and during the off season will be donated back to the community.
Growing strong roots in kids and families
Built in the spirit of learning, D-backs GREENS garden welcomes children and school groups to tour and get hands-on demonstrations to help them learn how to grow their own sustainable gardens. Planting a garden is healthy for kids – mind and body – and it gives them that extra encouragement to try new veggies and fruits too.
Ways to grow
Tips for backyard garden success – it might be easier than you think!
- Gardens grow in many places – you don’t need a perfectly level, large or sunny backyard.
- Try planting in a small raised bed or growing a few edibles in existing landscaping.
- Plants like zucchini, radishes and herbs are easier to grow – giving you more for your money.
