Potato Days/Fairs for 2004

  • Subject: [cg] Potato Days/Fairs for 2004
  • From: "Sharon Gordon" gordonse@one.net
  • Date: Sat, 17 Jan 2004 21:37:05 -0500
  • Importance: Normal

Here are some examples of Potato Days in the UK where community and home
gardeners can buy samples or larger amounts of wide varieties of seed
potatoes from central locations.  Some community gardens charter buses for
their members to attend regional Potato Days.

Info on London one is at
http://mysite.freeserve.com/potatofair04
85+ varieties

Full list of Potato Fairs at
www.hhdra.org.uk/potato.htm#days
with notes on varied activities that are included.

An example of a detailed announcement for a day at Ryton

including the full program and the Potato Menu
http://www.hdra.org.uk/pdfs/PotatoDay2004.pdf
and they even have a contest to find the person most knowledgeable about
potatoes who will reign as the Potato Head for the next year

Although I don't see any in this list, I have sometimes seen that groups
will have garlic in addition to the potatoes.
