Oh my goodness – I love this idea!
I recently got a press release from Livingscapes Nursery about an event they’re holding this weekend:
SPUDTACULAR! This Saturday March 20, 10 – 5
WHAT: Spudtacular! is a day of potato-centric activities for adults and kids – just in time for the spring potato-planting season. You’ll learn about the different varieties of potatoes, discover how to grow them, and take some home to plant – maybe even that afternoon, before the predicted rain comes late Sunday or Monday! (Although there are still a few good weeks to plant for an earlier harvest.)
WHEN: Saturday, March 20 from 10 – 5
(Music: noon – 5; potato info: every half hour; kids’ activities: ongoing!)
WHERE: Livingscape Nursery 3926 N. Vancouver Avenue, Portland, OR 97227
FOR MORE INFO, CONTACT: Steve Sullivan, 503.449.7644 – [email protected]
SPUDTACULAR! will feature music and food that celebrates the potato and lots of educational activities that provide the information needed to plant a wonderful crop of potatoes this spring. Throughout the day, master gardeners will present information on how to grow potatoes. There will also be exhibits of over 25 potato varieties of all different types and colors, kids activities including plantable potato heads and potato stamps, a live Old Time music jam with some Irish fiddling (12-5), and drinks and potato snacks.
Livingscape Nursery is a sustainably-focused garden and kitchen store whose goal is to empower people to live more engaged lives – engaged with place, food, family, friends and community… all well worth supporting. I’ll be stopping by – hope to see you there!
