Here at Blas y Tir we’re proud to continue to be actively involved in supporting the AHDB Grow Your Own Potatoes project throughout Wales and the UK! Each year we’re amazed with the response and delighted when we get to go and meet the winners!
This year we ventured to Milford Haven Junior School, who won the 2018 Welsh regional competition by growing 2400g of Gemson potatoes! It was fantastic to meet a school so interested in promoting healthy eating and growing their own produce, as well as lots of enthusiastic children keen to get involved in the school garden and grow their own food!
The overall winner of the 2018 Grow Your Own Potatoes competition throughout the UK were Town Junior School in Birmingham, who grew a fantastic 4572g of Rocket potatoes! This year 15,052 growing kits were delivered to primary schools throughout the UK… that’s a lot of potatoes grown and a lot of children growing their own produce!
If you’d like your school to get involved in the ADHB (Agricultural, Horticultural Development Board) Grow Your Own Potatoes project next year, please visit their website HERE!
