More Potatoes! Planting at the Garden

We need your help to get all of our potatoes in! So if you like mashed potatoes, roasted potatoes, scalloped potatoes or potato salad come help us and our no-till transplanter get all these spuds in the ground.

We will not be able to provide van transportation out to the garden but if you have a car come on down! We need folk mostly between 1-3 to help us run the transplanter. But if you can come earlier in the day that is helpful too! If we make it through the potatoes that we  will also plant broccoli, cauliflower, and cabbage.

 Please RSVP to this event via the Facebook event or email Chelsea Graves our Garden Education Coordinator at cbgraves@vt.edu. This event is some what weather dependent so please check the facebook page to confirm that we are still planting before heading down or call Chelsea at 571-271-8004.

Below are directions to the garden, carpooling is encouraged, please coordinate with your fellow volunteers.
