The Portable Garden is part of ReBuildUp’s Classroom to Food Market Pipeline (CFMP) that shows students how to grow vegetables, fruits, herbs, & spices in class or at home using every day materials like water bottles.

Both our first session from 1:00-1:50pm and our second session 2:00-2:50pm will be held in the Meadowbrook Room. Attendees will learn how to setup, harvest, and clean their Portable Garden.

Happy Birthday ReBuildUp Now 3 Years Old!

3 years 1200

Year 1 was spent building our Entrepreneur program followed by Year 2 where we began creating a Health program centered around inexpensive ways students can grow food to benefit food pantries.

Year 3 is when we seem to have hit our stride merging our Entrepreneur program with our Health program to create the Classroom to Food Market Pipeline (CFMP) that has gotten a great reception from schools and restaurants throughout North Carolina.

Thank you to everyone whose partnered and supported ReBuildUp, LLC over the past 3 years and we look forward to continuing our work as we grow forward.
