A Pizza Garden consists of all of the vegetables and herbs needed to create a pizza. We're talking tomatoes, sweet peppers, basil, oregano, and parsley! Our students LOVE pizza, and we have six raised beds that have not been touched in the last 5 years, so why not grow what we love to eat! The materials will allow all of our students grades 2-4 to experience the work behind growing their own vegetables and herbs. Students will use pruning tools to cut down the weeds that are THRIVING in the beds. Then, they will use the soil test kit to conduct a thorough analysis of the soil quality that we already have. Next they will use the wheel barrel and shovels to add the potting soil mix to the beds so that the soil is in tip top shape! Finally they will plant the seeds indoors and transfer them into the beds when the growing season begins. From there they will use the tools to harvest their crop and create their pizza!
