2017 Free Potatoes


Registration for the 2017 Grow Your Own Potatoes (GYOP) project is open. We participate annually, and the last harvest (2016) was very nice indeed. As with previous years, the kids took a keen interest in the planting and cropping stages, and regularly checked on the plants throughout the growing season. I suppose using a corner of the daily-trodden front garden helped.

The 2017 pack will contain:


  • Instruction leaflet
  • A2 Classroom weather chart
  • 2 x Hado grow bags
  • Variety label stickers for your grow bags
  • 7 seed potatoes
  • A chitting tray built into the box

The GYOP coordinators treat home educating family units as primary schools so we go through the same registration process. Note that as the project is originally for schools, some of the questions will not be relevant; simply put ‘not applicable’ or ‘home education’ if a response must be added.

Happy Growing.
