West Texas Food Bank opens its XTO Energy Innovative Garden on the weekend
MIDLAND, Texas (KOSA) – The West Texas Food Bank hosts its newest event at the new XTO Energy Innovative Gardens facility called “Saturdays in the Garden” on the third Saturday of every month.
Visitors have the chance to take a self-guided tour of the two greenhouses and the bio-domes.
The event is free to the public and staff are available to answer any questions you may have during your visit.
The West Texas Food Bank’s director of marketing and communications tells us that this event gives everyone the chance to find out exactly where their food comes from.
“It’s really a fun and different place to go in Midland on a Saturday, you know people complain there’s nothing for kids or families to do but that’s one of the reasons why we wanted to bring something like this to the community so that people have the opportunity to go out and really learn something different about how food gets to your table, where things come from, like this banana tree behind me that you wouldn’t really get to see otherwise,” said Craig Stoker, director of marketing and communications for the West Texas Food Bank.
The next “Saturday in the garden” will take place on February 19 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.
