Students at Volney Elementary School in the Fulton City School District learned a lot about where food comes from, making healthy food choices and more during a special after school enrichment program last year called “Grow Your World and Green Your School” or garden club.
They learned about soil preparation, plant selection and propagation, nutrition, healthy eating, and much more.
As a club project, the students planted their very own pizza garden growing many of the items used in making pizza sauce such as tomatoes, peppers, carrots, herbs, and more.
The round planting bed was divided into “slices,” each featuring a selected pizza ingredient.
Recently the students met for a pizza party “harvesting” their plants and working together to create homemade sauce.
