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.

We’re excited to begin the Fall Season of the Food Growing League (FGL) this month that features 4 schools made up of 13 classes with over 280 students participating from October through January.
Cone Elementary (Greensboro), Sugarloaf Elementary (Hendersonville), Eastern Wayne High (Goldsboro), and Invest Collegiate Middle (Charlotte) will compete for the best Tendergreen, Garden Cress, Radish, and Kale microgreen harvests each month.
School and Team Rankings will be posted at the end of each month both as a video and printable infographics.
