A project for your pupils to plant, grow and harvest potatoes. Enter the national 'Grow Your Own Potatoes' competition run by AHDB Cereals and Oilseeds and you will receive two chitting kits with two different varieties of potato.

Previously during March, we invite schools to Trinity Park to plant their potatoes and attend informative workshops to help you grow the best yields for the competition and learn about facts and figures about the humble potato and other root crops that are grown in Suffolk.

Pupils are then invited back in June to harvest and then cook their potatoes.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the Suffolk Agricultural Association is working hard to provide a new format and ways, if needed, of delivering this project within any new limitations and government guidelines.

Age Group: Yrs 2, 3, and 4
