UW Extension grew research potatoes in Powell this year

Four types of potatoes were grown this season by University of Wyoming Research and Extension Center in Powell in collaboration with Shoshone River Farm.

UW is testing how the types of potatoes grow in this area and Scott Richard of Shoshone River Farm is promoting food Hubs in our region. Food Hubs are a regional distribution and sales vehicle for growers to reach retail and wholesale outlets for their crops. These are a couple photos of volunteers bagging up the potatoes last Thursday shared with Reboot from Elijah Cobb.
