Cone Elementary rejoins the Food Growing League for Round 3

Welcome back Cone Elementary!

Scheduling setbacks caused by back to back hurricanes and other issues popping up along the way delayed Cone Elementary from taking part in the first two rounds of the Food Growing League this year.

Fortunately, things are back on track just in time for Round 3 when Cone Elementary finished building their Portable Gardens and getting them planted with Radishes a few days before Snow Storm Diego blanketed Greensboro with 13 inches of snow.

This will be Cone’s second year in the League and their third year in the overall program.

Cone Elementary wasn’t able to take part again this month due to scheduling issues, but will officially be entering the competition in December for the final 2 rounds.

Round 1 (Tendergreens) 2018-2019 Fall Season – Food Growing League

We kick off the 1st Round of the Fall Season of the 2018-2019 Food Growing League with the 1st Match of Sugarloaf Elementary (Hendersonville) vs. Cone Elementary (Greensboro) and 2nd Match of Eastern Wayne High (Goldsboro) vs. Invest Collegiate Middle (Charlotte). Unfortunately, due to a tight schedule caused by back to back hurricanes, Cone Elementary was not able to take part this month. We hope to see them back in November.

This season we’ve introduced “Pro-rated” growing to account for weather delays and other issues that alter growing schedules.

This means if a school takes longer than the standard two weeks from plant to harvest, their final harvest numbers are adjusted to show an estimate of their weights if they were harvested on the 14th day as scheduled. Classes with Pro-rated harvest numbers will have a “P” next to their team number and harvest total.
