Potato Planting    

Saturday, April 22 | 10:00–4:00 p.m.

Children's Craft: Potato Printing


Visitors of all ages can join workhorses Bill and Jesse to help plant a field of potatoes that will yield over 2,000 pounds of food for local soup kitchens. While farmers drive the horses and steer the plow to open up the rows, helpers will follow behind with baskets of seeds and place them in the furrows. Over the next 4 months the field will be weeded and hilled by interns and volunteers...before visitors again help to harvest the crop in mid-August.
