The triple-A baseball team the Fresno Grizzlies is a farm team for the San Francisco Giants, but now, they’re taking the term “farm” back to its roots.

Team owner Chris Cummings says one aspect of the Grizzlies’ Farm Grown project is the community garden and demonstration farm at the downtown Fresno ballpark. The community garden is already filled with plants, while the demonstration farm is still in the planning phase.

Grizzlies Community Relations Coordinator Risa Isard says there are many parts to the program, including the Farm Grown Council. There are seats open on the council, and the project is looking for volunteers with all kinds of experience with agriculture to help with their mission.
