Call for help!

I am doing the Good Food Advice Stall for Bradford Community Environment Project’s Gardening for Health programme (my work) on Thurs 26 March, 11am – 1pm.  The stall is in Oastler Market, Bradford City Centre.  I did have a helper coming who would have been able to sell WYOG left-over seed spuds from Potato Day, but she is no longer available.  Can anyone help out?  It’s not too onerous a task, and is usually quite jolly (I do it once a month – though we don’t usually sell potatoes!).  All you need to do is be there, I will bring the potatoes etc.   If you can help, contact me at my work –, tel 01274 223236.

More spuds

We have a few seed potatoes left over and available for sale – Setanta (late main, organic) and Duke of York (1st early, not organic).  Contact Jane on if you want any.  If there are any left by the end of March, she’ll have them with her on the Bradford Community Environment Project session at the Good Food Advice Stall in the entrance to Oastler Market, Bradford on Thursday 26 March from 11am to 1pm.
