Green Santa at Poteet Farmer’s Market Dec. 8
Children of all ages are invited to come and take their photo with Green Santa; those 2 to 12 years of ages will receive a special gift that keeps on giving on Saturday, Dec. 8 from 10 a.m. to 12 noon at the Poteet Farmer’s Market in the red barn on the Strawberry Festival grounds on Hwy 16 in Poteet. The event is sponsored by the Rotary Club of Poteet.
“We are a serviceoriented organization,” says Doris Thomas, President of the Rotary Club. “This year, Green Santa will launch our first children’s program in order to inspire children to spend more time outdoors and enhance their math and science knowledge by growing vegetables. If they decide they want to sell their produce, we will have a Little Gardener’s section at our monthly farmer’s market to add an entrepreneurial touch to their experience,” adds Thomas.
To help the little gardeners along, the Rotary Club will publish tips and advice on the Poteet Farmer’s Market Facebook page and have gardening seminars for parents and children.
Children will receive gift boxes with an array of seed packets, instructions on how to set up a vegetable garden and an invitation to the Little Gardener’s Club. There is no charge for the event and parents are invited to take their own photos of their children with Green Santa.
