Edible Garden at Avaya Stadium

Edible Garden at Avaya Stadium

The San Jose Earthquakes, along with the city of San Jose and Santa Clara County have set up a new edible garden on the grounds of the new Avaya Stadium.

The groundbreaking for this succulent venture was held on April 23rd with the planting of a cherry tree. “We are proud of our partnership with the City of San José,” said Earthquakes President Dave Kaval. “With their guidance, we have been able to make Avaya Stadium a leader in educating people about green initiatives. The garden in the 7UP Epicenter is a key piece of that and we are proud that the garden will include fruit trees that were so critical to the growth of this valley.”

Along with the cherry tree, the garden will also feature apricots and plums, with more varieties to be introduced later. The Quakes strive to be environmentally oriented as they already have innovative watering systems that allow little to no waste to be deposited into landfills.

Kerrie Romanow, director of the San José Environmental Services Department put it best, “This garden is a great way to engage fans, adults and children alike; and it reminds us that every green action that we take makes a significant impact in our community.”
