While Zynga normally doesn't offer much in the way of hints and teasers for upcoming events in its Facebook games (aside from the occasional letter on the Zynga forums), this seems to actually be a tradition in the Ville, as we learned about Dogs and the game's Doghouse before that feature launched and now, we've been told that a Greenhouse is coming soon.
Unfortunately, that's all we know about this upcoming event, but that won't stop us from speculating! If we're being logical, this Greenhouse will likely offer us a place to store our individual garden plots, so that we can continue to grow herbs, vegetables, etc. in a smaller space and save land. After all, how are we supposed to truly build our dream homes if we have to constantly manage the location of farm plots that are standing in the way of our building additional rooms?!
This Greenhouse may also serve as a way for us to speed up the growth of plots or perhaps earn free food once per day through simple collection (just as we earn coins or Happiness points for interacting with items in our homes). Whatever the case, there will likely be a series of quests to complete once the Greenhouse launches, so I hope you have plenty of active neighbors available to help you complete them. If not, you can always take advantage of the game's launch of Zynga.com and earn dozens of active neighbors in a matter of minutes. Stay tuned for more on this Greenhouse feature as we learn more!
What do you think of the idea of a Greenhouse in the Ville? Are you a big farmer, or do you mainly ignore the game's farm plots unless a quest wants you to grow something? Sound off in the comments!
