We've been at the Show - Spudhunting

Spudhunters is an interactive educational activity for 4-10 year olds, held at the Royal Melbourne Show each year.  It is supported by a number of organisations, including the RASV, Spade to Blade Catering, Longgrass Projects, the Victorian Potato Industry and Slow Food Central Victoria.

Kids can

  • Dig for potatoes in  special "paddocks", marvel at all the sizes and shapes of spuds to be found and taste some tata tucker cooked right there on the spot.
  • Speak to the farmer who grows the food.
  • Take home a free bag with the potato you found.
  • Learn how to grow your own spuds at home.
  • Use the complimentary recipe sheet.
  • Check out the all new Couch Potato Lounge, watch a dvd and munch on some delicious chips.  All gratis.  How about that!
