In June 2015 the year three children received from the Potato Marketing Corporation a package of seed potatoes, workbooks, potato scrubbing brushes and a non-fiction book on Potatoes, which was donated to our school library.

The children needed to measure the distance between the potatoes and the depth to plant the seed potatoes at. They then successfully planted a 16 potatoes. Over the last month they have been visiting the school vegetable garden and monitoring their growth. The potatoes are growing beautifully. Over the last week we have been fertilising and mounding the soil to help with the growth.

We recently had our photos published in the newsletter produced by the Potato Marketing Corporation.

We can’t wait to make potato salad with our fresh garden potatoes.
