Making Chesterfield more Sustainable

Left-over Stock Donations 2018

seed donationsAfter Potato Day at the end of January we had a quantity of left-over stock which has been on offer in a sale.

We would like to encourage schools, community groups etc. to now claim the remaining stock to grow seed potatoes and onion sets for educational or other social reasons. Our main aim to encourage people to experience ‘grow your own food’ and to enjoy the food particularly because of their work to produce it.

We ask that organisations wanting the free seed potatoes and onion sets should order only that which they can grow as we would like to think that these donations are not wasted potential food!

Please send your requests for FREE POTATOES, ONION SETS and GARLIC to:  please state the following:

1) Types of potato required (First Early, Second Early or Maincrop)?

2) Quantities of each required?

3) Quantities of onions sets required (each will produce one onion)?

4) Quantities of garlic bulbs required (each one will produce 10-12 garlic plants)?

5) The name, telephone number and email address of the person responsible for the request.

Collection can be made from the INSPIRE COMMUNITY GARDEN on any Sunday between 10am and 3pm.

Off Ashgate Road Car Park (S40 4AA)



The stock will remain available until it is all donated, we aim to not waste any of this surplus stock!

These donations are possible because of the success of Potato Day held each year by Transition Chesterfield. This year we supplied over a quarter of a million seed potatoes to the growers of this area!

Thank you for your support!
