MG1A CONFERENCE

The first round of the Food Growing League is here with three familiar schools plus a new competitor in the Fall 2019-2020 season.

Cone Elementary (Greensboro) takes on Stokesdale Elementary (Stokesdale) and newcomer Northview Middle (Hickory) goes up against Leesville Road Middle (Raleigh) for the best Tendergreen Harvest.

As a Bonus Round, we have Pet Food Sales after the matches. This Bonus Round allows students in the League using our GrowBuck program to sell their harvests to other students. This way students have another way to win plus get to practice their math and financial literacy skills.

2019-2020 FGL Fall Season Begins!

It’s time for the Fall Season (October-January) of the Food Growing League once again. Cone Elementary, Leesville Road Middle, and Stokesdale Elementary return for the Fall Season with Northview Middle out of Hickory joining us for their first season.

Like before, Tendergreens, Gardencress, Radish, and Kale will be grown each month with the new option to put harvests into small plastic bags to give to others as pet food instead of the single large container used in previous Fall Seasons.

If your class wants to join the larger Spring Season with more schools taking part from February though May, you can sign up here.

Let the growing begin!

Stokesdale Elementary says “Thank You” for Basil

We were very grateful to receive all the letters and decorated cards from the Stokesdale Elementary students that took part in the Spring Season of the Food Growing League.

Every letter was read and we wish the graduating 5th graders the best of luck as they move on to Middle School and we hope to see the graduating 4th graders again next year.

Have a great summer to all of you and everyone else across the League!
