Kids Dig Wisconsin Potatoes!
Members of Eileen Max’s fourth grade class at West Elementary School in Antigo, Wisconsin are shown with the potato plants they are growing in the classroom as part of the “Kids Dig Wisconsin Potatoes” program sponsored by the Wisconsin Potato Growers Auxiliary. Throughout the month of April, 2011, Rick Hafner, Mary Gallenberg, Patty Hafner and Sheila Rine gave classroom presentations on potato production to fourth grade classes at three different elementary schools in Antigo and followed that with tours at Schroeder Bros. Farms.
