FarmVille 2 - Green Thumb Games

A new is event is here! Start the Green Thumb games and compete with friends around the world for awesome prizes, such as the exclusive Golden Retriever! 
If you are at least level 9, you will see a pop-up inviting you to the Green Thumb Games Event! You will probably have to force close the game to see the update, which means to clear it from your mobile device's memory. You may need to reboot your device.  

You will have 14 days to complete the Green Thumb quests, and compete with friends for the top leaderboard position! The lucky ones at the top will earn an exclusive Golden Retriever (Gold Cup level), if you are in the middle position (Silver Cup level) you will earn 10 extra slots to your Barn, and if you are casually playing you can earn 3 Padlocks!  
**You will only be able to earn one of the rewards, not all three! The higher you get on the leaderboard will determine what reward you will receive on the last day of the event!**

The Green Thumb Games Trophy Stand will be located behind Eagle Eye Eddie. You will see 3 orders at a time that either can be harvested (crops), or crafted. Each item requested will have a different timer to allow you time to get the items needed.
Tip: Check the Farm Stand often to see if your friends are selling what you need.

On the lower right of the first tab of the Green Thumb Games (image above) is where you can easily access the Boosts available.  You can boost the amount of Green Thumb points by 50% for coins, or by 100% with keys. There will be a timer once a boost is activated and a short cool-down period when you can buy another boost. Boosts will last 1 hour, and you can only select one boost at a time. (prices subject to change based on level)

The second tab will show you the leaderboard that you are in. Not everyone you know will be in the same leaderboard. The leaderboard tab will tell you which prize category you are currently in (Gold, Sivler, or Bronze). You can also see how you rank among your friends. To be fair to all, you will be in a leaderboard with others that are similar level.  

You will see 3 different rewards that are broken into tiers. If you are in the top (gold) portion of your leaderboard on the final day of the event, you will be rewarded with the Golden Retriever. If you are in the middle tier (silver) at the end of the event, you will receive an extra 10 slots in your Barn. If you are in the lower tier (bronze), your reward will be 3 Padlocks.  You will only receive one of the rewards at the end, not all three.
Start off the quests by visiting the Green Thumb Games Trophy Stand located behind Eagle Eye Eddie's airplane. The Event HQ is where you earn Green Thumb points, and display the leaderboard. (Shown above)
There are 16 quests in this event. Tap on the Quest Manager on the lower left of your game to find quests. Unlike the past 2 events, this is not broken down into phases, as you will only receive one final reward at the end of the event (aside from quest rewards).
 New item needed and where to locate it:
  • Spinach: Explore Grandma's Glad & Pappy's Pond, or tend your Prized Animals to find Spinach. Pappy's Pond will give you 3 Spinach. These are the only places to find Spinach during the event, unless friends are generously selling it in the Farm Stand.
**Tip: Crafted items that contain Spinach will be worth higher Green Thumb points! Make sure to have plenty of Spinach to help you move up on the leaderboard!
