The Kimberley Helping Hands Food Bank is once again offering a fun ‘spud growing’ challenge to raise a little money and get people out in the garden.
The Food Bank is sponsoring, for the second year, a contest to see who can grow the heaviest load of potatoes from one seed potato in a bucket.
Last year, 35 buckets of potatoes were grown. At $10 each, that’s $350 for the Food Bank.
This year, it is hoped 50 people will take part.
You can pick up your seed potatoes and bucket at Top Crop on April 23 and the produce will be weighed on September 22 at the Community Garden Harvest Party.
You can grow your potatoes right in the bucket and bring your crop to the weigh in.
there will be prizes for the heaviest load of potatoes, the largest number and the most interesting shape.
Get a bucket of spuds and help out the Food Bank.
