Local food growers can choose from 30 different varieties of seed potato at the annual Huddersfield Potato Day, organised by Growing Newsome. This year’s selection includes 14 organic varieties and 7 heritage varieties. You can pick and mix, buying only what you need (instead of having to buy a whole bag of the same variety), and there’s plenty of advice on offer to help you make your choice. It’s ideal for anyone with a small garden or containers, or if you just want to try something new.
The event also includes our Seed Swap, onions and garlic, seed planting, children’s craft activities, stalls, refreshments and composting advice. Admission is free and everyone is welcome. Please come along to meet other local food growers and find out more about what we do.
We’re open on Saturday 4th March from 10am to 1pm at Newsome Scout Hall. You can also join us for a hot two-course lunch, served from 12 noon.
