Fairchild offers ‘pizza party’ for the whole family 

Pizza. Party. Gardening. Family time.

Miami’s Fairchild Tropical Garden is offering something for everybody with its weekly “Plant a Pizza Party” interactive online classes. The series of five sessions, which started on June 13, was designed to entertain families of all ages. Each class is $5 per household, plus a $1.94 fee.

To keep up with latest news, sign up for the daily Miami on the Cheap newsletter. You can also follow us on Facebook and on Twitter.

The 45-minute classes start at 11 a.m. and are taught via the free Zoom video conferencing platform, so you need a computer, internet access, a webcam and a microphone. Details and login information will be sent to participants before the class.

According to Fairchild, the remaining sessions are:

  • “Spice up your Life!”: Some like it hot! Boost your flavors with hot peppers, onions, garlic, and more! What’s the difference between a bell pepper and a jalapeño? What pepper is the right flavor for you? Dive in, with no no danger of burning your mouth from a distance!
  • “Putting it Together”: Bring all the tasty produce together to make a delicious pizza, with our special chef host!
