Taking part in 2018

The Grow Your Own Potatoes project is currently being assessed as part of the overall education strategy review at AHDB . In order to make sure that the long term changes we make are beneficial to the project and to ensure that GYOP 2018 takes place we will be making a few minor changes.

Recruitment of schools All recruitment for 2018 will be via our data base of contacts in schools that have previously taken part, inviting participation and ensuring that kits go out first to loyal schools. If you haven't done so already, please make sure you sign up as soon as possible to make sure you secure a kit for your school, as kits this year are limited.

Number of kits Once again in 2018 we will be allowing schools to sign up for a maximum of four classes to take part in the project but we will be reducing the total number of kits available to 15 000. This will reduce the overall cost of the initiative and enable us to supply growing kits FREE of charge once again in 2018.

Supporting materials If you have taken part in GYOP before you will know that we have previously included lots of supporting printed materials, including poster and stickers in your kit box. This year all supporting materials will be downloadable or interactive on the website. This will save on expensive print costs and mean that schools don't miss out

If you have any suggestions, ideas or improvements for GYOP please send them in as we are currently planning for 2019
