Free Potato Day out at Rainshadow Organics

Rainshadow Organics potatoesToday from 10am until 3pm, Rainshadow Organics out in Terrebonne is hosting a Free Potato Day to give away some 18 tons of potatoes to the community:

We grew 100 tons of organic potatoes this year in 14 different varieties. You’ve seen them in Whole Foods around the Pacific Northwest. After the terrible cold where we saw -27 degree temperatures, many of our potatoes froze in our cellar.  We have 18 tons and about 80% of that is good, but needs to be sorted. We want to extend these potatoes to our community. Come to the farm with boxes and take potatoes for your family and friends. They should keep in a cool dark place well into spring. Considering the hard work and tremendous loss this year, we will happily take donations for potatoes, but we are most interested in finding them good homes. Help us sort potatoes to take to food banks and neighbor impact. This is a great way to start the new year. The weather should be beautiful. Meet some new people. Spend time with your local farmers. Continue the season of giving.

They are located at 70955 NW Lower Bridge Way in Terrebonne. (There’s a Facebook event page here as well.)
