PNC PARK URBAN GARDEN
When the sun comes out and the sound of cracking bats fills PNC Park, the Pirates continue to re-open the PNC Park Urban Garden. The Urban Garden uses sustainable practices and provides vegetables and herbs, grown on-site, to be used in Pirates players' favorite healthy dishes prepared by Chef Tony.
In 2022, over 184 pounds of produce was harvested from the Urban Garden.
The Urban Garden is a part of the Pirates' commitment to sustainability through the Club's nationally recognized "Let's Go Bucs. Let's Go Green." initiative.
Not only does the garden use AgRecycle compost mix that was once PNC Park food waste, but the garden also uses recyclables collected by the Pirates to line each of the raised grow beds. In addition, rainwater is collected on the patio as the garden's primary watering source.
A featured stop during PNC Park Ballpark Tours, the Urban Garden also hosts educational programming and special events.
