UPDATE March 19, 2021: Mother Nature decided to give us rain—just not when we wanted it!   Unfortunately, the ground is going to be too saturated for us to plow in preparation for our volunteer Potato Planting Day originally scheduled for Saturday, March 20th.  We are moving our Potato Planting Day to our rain date of Saturday, March 27th.  We hope that the weather will more cooperative next week! 

Volunteers who enjoy the great outdoors, don’t mind getting dirty, and want to help others are asked to join us for our rescheduled potatoplanting extravaganza at Historic Sotterley as part of our “Growing for Good” program!For the eighth year running, we are continuing the challenging work of sustainably farming Sotterley’s land while donating our produce to help those in need in our own community.

We will have two Potato Planting sessions: 9:00 am and 12:30 pm. This is a family-friendly event – we invite anyone 5 and older (with adultsupervision) to help plant potatoes. Perfect for Girl Scout OR Boy Scout troops for their volunteer requirements!

*If this event is cancelled due to inclement weather or if the fields are too wet to plant, we will put out a new rain date!

Please sign up in advance so we know how many volunteers to expect.   Face masks are mandatory and we recommend gloves, shoes, and clothes you are not afraid to get dirty!   For updates on Sotterley’s schedules, plans, or cancellations, check Historic Sotterley’s Facebook page and website for more information.
