— It has been nearly six years since Greene, Colorado, resident Tasha Greene became the first teacher in her district to receive an award for her leadership on a farm.
On Monday, the first-ever Greene Farms Farmers Market will take place in the school cafeteria, and the school district is proud to be hosting the event.
The event will be held at the school’s main building, located at 4th and Green, at 6 p.m. on Monday.
The farm will host a variety of vendors who will sell fresh produce, baked goods and more, with proceeds going to the school and community.
The farmers market will also be an opportunity for students to learn more about agriculture.
The event is open to all ages, but students with disabilities, as well as students with special needs, are encouraged to attend.
Students will have the opportunity to learn about farm animals and the importance of sustainable farming, and a farmer will be on hand to provide them with tips on how to grow a healthy and nutritious farm.
The market will be open from 6 p,m.
to 9 p. m. and the farm will be available for purchase.
Greene has received several awards over the years, including being named one of the 100 Most Influential People by Forbes magazine, the most influential person in her state by The Washington Post, and featured in The Huffington Post, Newsweek, ABC News, NBC News, CBS News, CNN, The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal.
She is also the recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
Greenes mother, Tasha, said that she wants to give back to her community and to give students a chance to learn something new.
“The more we grow, the more we learn, and if we are doing well, that makes us better teachers,” she said.
Greene hopes that the event will inspire more young people to learn how to farm and create a better future for their communities.
