Apparently the A’s are committed to this home improvement thing.
Last year they unveiled Championship Plaza. Recently they announced the Treehouse, a party deck above the left field bleachers.
Next up: the Farm.
Partnering with Acta Non Verba, a nonprofit “dedicated to creating safe and creative outdoor spaces for youth and families” according to a team news release, the A’s are placing “dozens of redwood planters that will grow an assortment of produce and flowers” just off the Eastside Club near the right field flag poles. The space will also feature seating areas. Scarecrows will be decked out in jerseys and caps of the A’s minor league teams.
According to a team news release, Acta Non Verba will be able to sell what is grown in the Farm, with the proceeds going to prospective college students.

The space, which will accommodate approximately 100 people, can be reserved for pregame events.
The Farm will be open for the 2018 season.
