A wide variety of organic potatoes are available by the sack-load or smaller quantities by calling ActivLives on 01473 345350 or contacting Jo on 07760 583950 or firstname.lastname@example.org
You can also pick up your own requirements for your allotment or garden for a small donation to ActivGardens.
Did you know you can grow potatoes in a bucket or large pot? Even if you don’t have a garden you can get a good crop from just one potato – at least enough for a portion of oven baked chips or mash for bangers – grown on your doorstep? This is a fun activity to do with children at home or school, so get in touch with us if you’d like to come down and find out how.
The potatoes are surplus stock from Stonham Barns Potato Day, held every year at Stonham Barns http://www.eapd.btck.co.uk/ We have had a great range of main crop, 1st and 2nd early, red, white and coloured potatoes as well as some of the more exotic species such as ‘Blue Danube’, ‘Highland Red’ and ‘Shetland Black’ passed on to us. So hurry down and get your potatoes for the season ahead.
Event: We will be selling seed potatoes at our first seasonal market of the year on Friday 18 March, 10.30am to 1.30pm, when we will be launching our ActivSheds project. Please come and get your spuds and lots more at the CRESS Pavilion, Halifax Road, Ipswich IP2 8RE.
