Faithful Farm sits atop Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, home of the San Francisco 49ers. Since 2018, we’ve developed a quarter acre of row crops on the roof (above the press box) that grows everything from pickles to pumpkins for the Faithful.

We built on the previous work done by Gazzardo and Associates, who had originally designed the roof as an ornamental garden. We removed some of the quick-draining rooftop soil and replaced it with an organic soil blend to support crops, added drip irrigation and came up with custom crop plans to support the various stadium concessions.
“Our 27,000-square-foot green roof successfully helps reduce heating and cooling requirements within our suite tower and carving out this small portion to grow crops for use in the stadium further minimizes our carbon footprint by reducing our reliance on outside food sources.”-Jim Mercurio, Stadium GM
