In­vite to free potato talk

Loughborough Echo - - NEWS -

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.
