    Hi WIAG,

    I would very much like to learn how to fuse potatoes with lettuce; but I can’t this weekend. Would you please let me know if you have repeat or similar workshops? I also see you sell potato fusion kits with instructions. How much to order one?

      The next workshop will not be until next year when it’s time to plant potatoes again, however, you can still order the “kit” for $12. Email us to order before April 1st and we will get you set up.
