Mile of Potatoes 2016 Project Map

The Mile of Potatoes project aims to replicate the Mile of Potatoes grown in Brighton by the Land Army Girls during the war. We need 5,280 plants to make a mile.

If you grow potatoes you can register your crop with us. As a grower you will get a potato icon plotted at the location of your potatoes. You can click each icon to display the grower's name, street and number of plants - a photo is optional. Follow our Potato Blog and Facebook  and Twitter for all the latest.
