Transition Chesterfield- Potato Day
Potato Day 29th January 2022 will be our 14th Annual Event!
The closing date for pre-ordering your potato’s is 3rd December. Chesterfield pre-orders must be collected on 29th January 2022.
Potato Day has become an annual event where Transition Chesterfield provide a number different varieties of premium Scottish seed potatoes supplied by Jamieson Brothers of Annan (JBA), plus onion sets, shallots, garlic bulbs, and many different varieties of pea and bean seeds. They also have Vitax Organic Potato Fertiliser.
The garlic, shallots, onions, peas and beans are supplied by a local Derbyshire wholesale seed supply company to EU Rules and Standards.
If you are not able to order online, we can send you a paper copy of our pre order leaflet for Potato Day 2022.
If you would like us to send you a copy of the new leaflet, please text ‘Potato Day’ and your name and address to: 07834 838076 or email: email@example.com
Can You Spare Some Time?
As before, we’re looking for volunteers to help out the day before and on the day of the event. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you can help out.
Potato Day helps and encourages many people to take that first step in growing their own food. It also helps out those who are already growing their own. Leftover potatoes are donated to local schools for the students to grow, and the money raised helps pay for the long-term project to maintain the organic demonstration garden in Chesterfield (The Inspire Community Garden) and to plant fruit trees and other edible plants in public places.
Other projects are funded by Transition Chesterfield to help people in the area be more self-sufficient, sustainable and reduce their carbon footprints.
