1.17.17-BEETS-Giants-Cooking_IMG_20170117_164252277_HDROn Tuesday, January 17, 2017 the BEETS (Band of Environmentally Educated and Employable Teens) enjoyed a cooking day at AT&T Park. The park, home to the San Francisco Giants also hosts a beautiful garden. It is a 4,320-square-foot patch, located just under the scoreboard behind the centerfield wall. 1.17.17-BEETS-Giants-Cooking_IMG_20170117_160549585Beyond providing a one-of-a-kind food experience within AT&T Park, the Garden serves as a living, learning classroom that encourages children to live healthier, more active lives. Through hands-on activities, children learn about the importance of healthy eating, see first-hand where food comes from and how it grows, and roll up their sleeves for a cooking class alongside Bay Area chefs. 1.17.17-BEETS-Giants-Cooking_IMG_1132The BEETS enjoyed harvesting the huge stems of kale, chard and broccoli to make pizzas in the kitchen. 1.17.17-BEETS-Giants-Cooking_IMG_20170117_1733021021.17.17-BEETS-Giants-Cooking_IMG_1128They also got to make fruit kabobs which were really delicious!1.17.17-BEETS-Giants-Cooking_IMG_20170117_171613285
