Seed Potato Giveaway 2023
We had a totally spudtacular Seed Potato Giveaway in March! This year we distributed more pounds of seed and baking potatoes than ever before, with a grand total of around 70,000 pounds of potatoes going out to 175 families and organizations. Here are photos from the event – including some shots of the initial delivery: ~70,000 pounds of taters all in one place! 44 volunteer hours later, almost all of the potatoes had found a home. THANK YOU to the many, many folks who picked up potatoes to grow and share.
Thank you to ALL who made this event possible. We’re especially grateful for our amazing partners at Appalachian Center for Economic Networks (ACEnet) for making this annual event run so smoothly, and to Jackson Area Ministries for providing the potatoes.
Next up is our seed giveaway! Be sure to stop by your nearest Athens County Public Library branch to pick up garden seeds.
