Get the Kids, Get Outside and Get Healthy with a Family Garden

This guest blog was written by Ron Abell, Aramark’s senior executive chef at Fenway Park.

Springtime for me means baseball and gardening. Fortunately, I get to experience the best of both worlds, right here at Fenway Park. Fenway is not only home to the nine-time World Series Champion Boston Red Sox, but one of the finest rooftop gardens in all of sports. For me, there’s nothing like cooking with freshly-picked ingredients from the garden, feet away from the kitchen.
