There will be space for community groups and information stalls at the 2018 Potato Day and Seed Swap. If you are involved in a community group or local nature based business, this can be a great way to publicise what you are doing, find out what people think and get more people involved. There is no charge for community groups, but space is a little limited, so if you are interested, please get in touch as soon as possible, by emailing Caroline at:
