Growing spuds in burlap sacks

The Westview Elementary Landed Learning class have been busy planting seeds and continuing their garden-based learning at home. To support that, and give them something extra fun to do, we sent home potato growing kits in burlap sacks and made a video to help with getting started (featuring Freda the Dog). Check it out!

And if you want to try this at home (it’s easy!), here is our instruction sheet.

Thanks to Mother Nature, and Landed Learning volunteer Tracey Hudson, for generously donating seed potatoes. Thanks also to River City Coffee and 32 Lakes Coffee Roasters for supplying us with burlap sacks.
