Potato Pirates Project

No more potatoes available---but lots of opportunities for other vegetables, herbs and flowers.

The Potato Pirates Project is patterned after the ND Home Garden Variety Trials program. This program works with over 200 families every year, evaluating promising varieties of vegetables, herbs and flowers in backyard gardens.

We strongly encourage you to check out that program. The program offers 50 fun vegetables, herbs and flower trials available to families. Everyone is welcome to participate. Seeds are free for kids.

Evaluations of the project show that our youth gardeners develop skills in science, enjoy improved diets, and show increased levels of physical activity. Families enjoy higher yields of vegetables.
