Down to Earth write: "A huge thank you to everyone who supported our socially distanced, Covid-safe Potato Day at Stroud Farmers Market on 6 February. All 'spuds' were sold by 1pm (the equivalent of 8 x 25 Kg sacks (the large full sacks are 25Kg) with 15 varieties of potatoes. We made a fantasic £330.00, which will be divided between Transition Stroud and Down to Earth". Thank you to all our volunteers, Gerb, organiser of Famers Market, for allowing us a stall at no charge, and to Dundry Nursery for kindly giving us the paper bags, labels and trays. Enjoy your spuds!"
