urban farm & garden project

The World In A Garden educates community and youth about the nutritional, cultural and environmental aspects of growing and eating food.
Mar 212011

Yesterday the garden was teeming with potato growers at The World In A Garden’s 2nd Annual Potato Fusion Workshop. A diverse group of members from all over the community joined us to construct their very own potato fusion kits and raise money for a couple of good causes. The vibrant and vivacious Gin Nielsen of Project Somos walked us through the workshop as we planted the potatoes and topped them off with organic lettuce starters. Everyone walked away with a sac of ready to grow potatoes and a smile on their face!

If you missed the workshop, good news!! We are still selling potato fusion kits for $15 each.


Wed. March 30, 4:30-6:30pm

Wed. April 6, 4:30-6:30pm

Sun. April 10, 11am-3pm


Your kit will include:

- 2 used burlap coffee sacs donated by Ethical Bean Coffee 

- Nutrient-rich soil donated by MyGardenBag.com
