Frome Potato Day and Seed Swap 2017

it's more than just spuds!

Community stalls and information

There will be space for community groups and information stalls at the 2017 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
