Kids Dig Wisconsin Potatoes
(Program can be adapted for students in Kindergarten – 12th Grade)
The Kids Dig Wisconsin Potatoes Program was developed by the Wisconsin Potato Growers Auxiliary to help students learn about the Wisconsin Potato Industry and where their food comes from. Students will learn first hand what it takes to grow potatoes when you grow real potatoes in your classroom! We will supply you with seed potatoes, a materials list, and instructions. We’ll even help you plan a Harvest Party for the class when it is time to harvest your potatoes.

Wisconsin Potatoes in the Classroom is a grant program which offers an opportunity for schools to apply for funding to support the use of Wisconsin potatoes in high school family, consumer science and agriculture classes. Funding is provided by the Wisconsin Potato Growers Auxiliary through monies raised by their baked potato sales at the Wisconsin State Fair and through the Wisconsin Potato Industry Board.
