At X-PO, participants produced the information for a GIY guide to making traditional ‘lazy-beds’ or potato ridges, a simple and effective way of cultivating potatoes that is suitable for small urban gardens. This information was gathered together with Frances Whitehead's research into the history of potato cultivation in South America, for the first SPUD pamphlet; a guide to growing potatoes and information on local words, varieties and systems used in County Clare.

The pamphlet was produced and potato cakes served at X-PO’s stall as part of Grizedale Arts’ Colloseum of Consumption, Frieze Artfair Project in 2012.Selling potat cakes at Frieze
