The Spotlight Series on Potatoes is a multi-faceted toolkit that includes the following resources:
- Video: An 8-minute video showcases potato farming with farmer Cory Gerard of Rod Swenson Farms in Delta, BC.
- GIS Resources: Students can explore the Grow BC Potato Story and Grow BC Seed Potato Story on the GIS site to learn about BC’s incredible potato industry. They can also use the new Farm Explorer BC site, supported by The Province of British Columbia through the Ministry of Agriculture and Food, to take an online journey through BC potato farms.
- Activities: Educators can use Focus on Potatoes, Potatoes for the Planet!, and Picture Perfect Potatoes to teach students all about spuds.
- Recipes: Students can utilize their culinary skills to make tasty BC grown recipes (developed by BCAITC’s Chef Trevor Randle) like BC Potato Hash with Bacon and Over-Medium Eggs, BC Potato and Bacon Chowder, and BC Fresh Potato Gnocchi.
