Fenway Farms

Project Completion

Boston, MA

Building Type

Fenway Farms was designed as part of an ongoing campaign by the Boston Red Sox to inspire individual and community health and wellness for Red Sox Nation. 

Some 2.9 million visitors who come to the park each year will get the chance to watch Recover's oft-collaborators, Green City Growers, harvest Fenway Farms’ three-season yield, in excess of 5,000 lbs. of organic produce each year. Harvested crops ranging from early-season arugula to late-summer potatoes are selected by EMC Club Kitchen chefs for use in salads and fresh side dishes, as well as for use by street-side food vendors. 

The farm features removable media modules filled with compost-based growing media that meets both structural requirements and food production goals. An on-demand smart drip irrigation system conserves water while supporting the farm’s rotating array of vegetables and herbs. Irrigation cycles adjust to local weather data and can be monitored and adjusted remotely. 

Planting and weekly farm maintenance services are provided by our partner, Green City Growers.
