    What to do

  • 1. Decide what you’re going to plant, depending on the season. Plan to grow an equal number of herbs and vegetables (for example, three vegetables and three herbs).

  • 2. Choose an area in the garden to use as a pizza garden, or use a few containers grouped together. If you can, it could be fun to grow the garden in a circular pizza shape!

  • 3. Divide the garden into equal segments (like slices of pizza).

  • 4. Plant the vegetable and herb seeds or seedlings in the different sections.

  • 5. Decorate the pizza garden with labels.
