“We want to make people aware of the importance of this special spud.” Jim Millar Curator/Manager says, ” The International Year of the Potato is raising awareness of the key role played by the “humble tuber” in agriculture, the economy and world food security. All in all the potato is about the worlds most efficient means of converting plant, land, water and labour into a palatable and nutritious food. To share this “humble tuber” families are invited to visit the museum and enjoy our HALLOWEEN HARVEST”. “
