Thank you to everyone in the Berkey community for your support for the potato project for MCC and Model school over the past 5 years. All the red and white potatoes have been sold or donated There are some purple potatoes in storage; if you would like some, see James Yoder.  

Each year we harvested between 500 and 700 pounds of potatoes which were divided between The Window and folks in the Berkey community. This past year was James Yoder’s last year for organizing this effort, but he would be glad to consult with anyone who would like to take on this project. If you would like to learn about about the various facets of growing potatoes, including potato bug identification from egg to adult, weed control, storing potatoes for a new crop, planting, and harvesting, please contact James.
