Pizza Plants – kids trail

Pizza plantsAs part of our current display (which is all about which plants are in our food), we’ve put together a garden trail for kids.
The pizza plants trail is designed to encourage children and families to grow simple plants at home that can then be used as tasty pizza toppings. We have a trail guide that can be picked up at our visitor centre, and then a series of signs in our edible garden and herb garden highlighting the relevant plants and their uses.
Kids are then also encouraged to pick up an envelope of beetroot seeds to grow at home once they have completed the trail.
Garden trails are very popular here at the Auckland Botanic Gardens, and we have printed 5000 copies to be distributed over the three month period of the theme.
