The background of the gallery image (click to enlarge) shows a mostly chronological order of the year (March 2017-March 2018) in pictures starting with pics from the 99th Annual NCAFCS in Charlotte almost exactly one year ago up to the Healthy For Good Expo just last weekend in High Point. The text is made up of screen shots from our new Food Growing League (FGL) started this past January.
We look forward to continuing to expand the program and improve the Health & Entrepreneurship skills of students and adults alike.
Thanks again to the Healthy For Good Expo for inviting us out again this year. The event has definitely grown since last year. It was good making connections with High Point parents looking to bring the Food Growing League (FGL) to their children’s schools.
Join us today (Sat. Feb, 24th) at the 2nd Annual 2018 Healthy for Good Expo at Hartley YMCA located at 150 West Hartley Drive, High Point, NC 27265(336) 869-0151 www.hpymca.org.
We’ll have a booth setup showing off our new Food Growing League (FGL) along with the 8 different foods students are currently growing this year plus FGL stickers to give away.
The first 100 kids that show up with a healthy drawing will be receiving a free ticket to Wet’n Wild at Emerald Pointe!
More prizes will be available including a chance to win a NEW CAR in the Carolina Kia/Hyundai of High Point Basketball shootout.
Thank you Reno Palombit along with NC Family and Consumer Sciences for inviting us out again this year to the NC CTE Summer Convention here in Greensboro. Both Sessions of our Classroom to Food Market Pipeline (CFMP) hit full attendance and all 40 Portable Garden Mini Kits were distributed to attendees.
If you didn’t get a chance to make the Sessions, you can learn more by visiting our Schools page here.
Attendees will receive a Portable Garden kit to grow in class this fall. Limit 20 attendees per session. 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.
Learn more about bringing the CFMP to your School here.
We mistakenly listed the Tuesday, July 25th 1pm NC CTE Opening General Session time as our 1st session time that will take place the next day on July 26th, Wednesday at 1pm & again at 2pm. We have corrected the post below accordingly. Sorry for any inconvenience (you know how crazy conventions can get).
We look forward to holding our Portable Garden demo at the NC CTE Convention this week so students can grow food in the classroom to improve food security in their communities.
The Convention is being held at the Koury Convention Center in Greensboro. Our first session will be at 1pm on Wednesday and our second will be right after at 2pm.

We made a lot of great connections at this year’s 99th North Carolina Association of Family & Consumer Sciences Convention at Johnson & Wales University in Downtown Charlotte March 3rd-4th. We look forward to working with everyone on setting up Classroom to Food Market Pipeline’s in their community.
