The Organic Centres very own Potato Day is back on Sunday, March 6.

The free event, on from 12-4pm, which is back after a break last year has always proved very popular.

This year will be no exception as the day will host a market onsite with a wide array of craft and food.

There are organised talks including from renowned organic grower and author Klaus Laitenberger. He will investigate the history and the alternatives to the traditional potato.

Demos will include old friends from The Loy Association of Ireland exhibiting the historic tradition of turning the sod for potato growing.

The shop will be a buzz with a wide variety of potato seeds (and much more) for sale, and there will be much to browse in the craft, eco and book sections as well as for gardening produce and equipment.

There will be an opportunity to catch a free tour of the centre, and relax with some music. Children’s workshops will mean that there'll be plenty to entertain the children. And as those who know and love the event, it will be all things potato on the menu in the Grass Roof Cafe! 

Dervilla Keegan of the Organic Centre said: "We are delighted to be back with Potato Day. It’s always a lovely social event.  It’s been a sign that we’re coming out of winter and looking forward to the longer days and the growing season to come.  It will have added significance for many this year, and we are really looking forward to hosting it."
