Classroom Farming returns to Cone Elementary

On Friday October 6th, Fourth graders at Cone Elementary resumed the Classroom to Food Market Pipeline (CFMP). This month of the CFMP is sponsored by Emma Keys Flat Top Grill.

Students in teams of 2 got the chance to build their own mini-Portable Gardens that they’ll be in charge of for the remainder of the school year.

This year’s version of the CFMP brings with it a new food to plant each month.

On Wednesday evening, November 16th, Ragsdale High School joined 14 other schools in Guilford County to receive a “Gift of Giving” grant sponsored by Four Seasons Town Centre. The grant is made in partnership with Guilford County Schools’ (GCS) Character Development Initiative to fund programs that promote student service-learning.

Part of the Ragsdale’s grant money will go toward adding five more Portable Gardens to its existing Classroom to Food Pantry Pipeline (CFPP) to benefit Parkwood Baptist Church’s Hand to Hand Food Pantry.

In mid-January 2017, a :30 second video of this project in action will be shown by GCS and local media.
