"Little Spuds" to Harvest Yukon Gold!
The “little spuds” of St. Joseph’s (Victoria) elementary school whole-heartedly took up a challenge I issued last year to plant Yukon Gold potatoes to be donated to this Fall’s Saint Vincent de Paul food drive. All 430 schoolchildren gleefully responded, and under the careful farming eye of the Bishop and guidance of principal Simon and Fr. William, they’ve installed a crop of potatoes near the school. These children are solid-gold nuggets of joy who have an expectation of a glorious crop of Yukon Gold “spuds” for the food drive.
Food security and environmental stewardship starts at home!
