Special thanks to the restaurant goers that let us stop by their table a snap a few pictures of their delicious meals.
The micro greens were promptly served up with meals for customers to enjoy.
Starting Tuesday Evening, you can swing by Tessa Farm to Fork to enjoy student grown microgreens from Noble Academy with your meal. After Tuesday night, the microgreens will be available to order throughout the day for the rest of the week (Jan 17th-22nd) while supplies last.
Help us promote this event in the Greensboro area by sharing the news with family, friends, and neighbors to help support these young urban farmers. This is all part of the Classroom to Food Market Pipeline (CFMP) setup between Noble Academy and Tessa Farm to Fork.
Tessa Farm to Fork’s hours are:
TUESDAY – FRIDAY 7:30AM – 2PM | 5PM – 9PM
SATURDAY 8AM – 2PM | 5PM – 9PM
SUNDAY 8AM – 2PM
On Tuesday evening, microgreens grown by Noble Academy students will be delivered to Tessa Farm to Fork. Swing by Tuesday through Sunday (or while supplies last) to sample these greens and support the Classroom to Food Market Pipeline (CFMP) between Noble and Tessa.
Tessa Farm to Fork can be found at 3929 Battleground Avenue in Greensboro.
On Tuesday, January 3rd, students at Noble Academy kicked off the first day of school building their Portable Garden bins as part of their Classroom to Food Market Pipeline (CFMP) with program sponsor Tessa Farm to Fork.
Students plan to have all bins setup by the end of the week with their first harvest and delivery of microgreens scheduled for Tuesday, January 17th.
Come out to Tessa on the evening of Tuesday, Jan. 17th and Wednesday, Jan. 18th to get your fill of these student grown greens.
4th grade students at Sugarloaf Elementary in Hendersonville, NC setup multiple Portable Garden Bins in December to grow over the Holiday Break to harvest when they return to class.
1st Block students at Ragsdale High School harvested 5 bins in a single class as part of their Classroom to Food Pantry Pipeline (CFPP) with Hand to Hand Food Pantry sponsored by Sonya Hamilton State Farm.
This is a bit of feat for a class of 22 harvesting, cleaning, and reseeding the equivalent of seven 12 Bottle Portable Garden Bins (12BPG) because 4 of the 5 bins were the larger grey 18 Bottle Portable Garden Bins (18BPG) that each equal 1 1/2 12 BPG’s.
Parts of the harvest were filmed for an upcoming video to air on local television as part of a Gift of Giving Grant sponsored by the Four Seasons Town Centre.
Starting in January 2017, students at Noble Academy will begin growing and harvesting greens to be served during the 3rd week of each month at Tessa Farm to Fork on Battleground Ave in Greensboro. This is part of Tessa’s newly launched Classroom to Food Market Pipeline (CFMP) with area schools.
Stop by Tessa to get a taste of these student grown greens.
