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 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 SEED POTATOES to: firstname.lastname@example.org please state the following:
1) Types of potato required (First Early, Second Early or Maincrop)?
2) Quantities of each required?
3) The name, telephone number and email address of the person responsible for the request.
PLEASE NOTE ALL ONION SETS HAVE NOW BEEN TAKEN!
Collection can be made from the Langer Lane area of Chesterfield. Full details will be supplied when an order is placed.
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!
