Grow Your Own Potatoes (Planting)*

4 March 2020

This spud-tacular event gives children the chance to plant their own seed potatoes, take them back to their schools, and learn how to look after them. They come back to the Showground later in the year to harvest their crop, have it weighed, and make delicious potato dishes.

Watch our 2019 event here:

This event makes children curious about their food and where it comes from, and the learning continues long after we get back to school. I am sure that as a result of growing their own vegetables, the children are more willing to try them.
