Seattle Seahawks has formed a partnership with Sound Sustainable Farm, which is owned by Cedar Grove, to grow pesticide-free potatoes with compost. The 6,000 pounds of potatoes will be used to create new menu items that will be offered during home football games at CenturyLink Field.
The new menu items will debut for the 12th Man on Sunday, when the team will focus on raising awareness around environmentally sound practices.
KING-TV has more details:
The Seahawks defense is known for getting down and dirty. So dirty, in fact, the team is not shy about serving 6,000 pounds of potatoes grown from trash.
Earlier this year, the Hawks eyed a field in Redmond, not for football but for growing local food. Sound Sustainable Farm is run by Cedar Grove, the company that turns King and Snohomish County food waste into compost.
That compost grew pesticide-free potatoes which will debut for the 12th Man on Sunday.
