Free Spuds – Over 45,000 KG given away to support Local Farmers in Edmonton

What a neat promotion and idea.  L I N K

The farmer gave away every potato in his field– 45,000 kilograms of the Russet variety.

“The stunt was in an effort to promote local crops and inform the public about the dangers of urban sprawl creeping into agricultural land around the city.

“We are trying to get to the city before just paving it over and going for suburban development,” says Monique Nutter, of advocacy group Greater Edmonton Alliance. The group promoted the giveaway and is working with Visser to preserve local farmland from development. Nutter says city hall needs to “look at the value of the land.”
