To request sweet potato slips (seedlings) and/or donate to the project click below:
You will be able to pick up your slips at the Dane County UW-Extension office (directions here) when they arrive the week of June 11th. Stay tuned for exact timing.
When estimating how many slips you would like to request, consider that each plant will need about 3×3 feet of growing space. We suggest that you plant more slips than you estimate in case of die-off due to pests and environmental conditions.
Remember, the goal of this project is for you to keep half of your harvest and for the rest to be donated to a local food pantry.
