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.
