Invite to free potato talk
RESIDENTS are invited to find out more about how to grow their own potatoes at Transition Loughborough’s second annual Potato Talk.
Following the success of last year’s ‘All About Potatoes’, the talk will take place at Fearon Hall, Rectory Road, Loughborough, on Saturday, October 14, 11.30am, as part of the community centre’s Autumn Fayre.
Attendees will hear a talk on growing potatoes from an expert, get to taste different varieties and will have the oppor- tunity to ask potato-growing questions.
The event will also mark the launch of pre-orders for Potato Day 2018. Pre-ordering allows people to purchase their seed potato at good prices whilst helping to raise funds for Transition Loughborough.
Jon Knight, of Transition Loughborough, said: “Potato Talk was a real success last year and we’re really excited about working with Fearon Hall to make it part of their Autumn Fayre.”
The talk is free, although donations will be appreciated.
