Food Growing League – Round 1 Match Ups

This is the 1st Round Match Up video showing which classrooms will be competing against each other in the Inaugural Round of the Food Growing League (FGL) sponsored in part by Bulldog Printing.

Nearly 200 students in 10 Classrooms using the Classroom to Food Market Pipeline (CFMP) program from 4 Schools: Cone Elementary, Dillard Middle, Stokesdale Elementary, and Sugarloaf Elementary make up the participants of this debut season of the FGL.

Because Sugarloaf’s entire 4th grade and Dillard’s entire 8th grade are competing, each classroom is divided into Class A, B, C, & D to identify them. Both the single classrooms from Cone and Stokesdale are also listed as Class A.

The Competition Video for this 1st Round will be posted in late January/early February after all classroom harvests have been completed.

Food Growing League (FGL) Launching

After 3 years of ReBuildUp’s food growing program in various NC schools, we’re happy to announce the launch of the Food Growing League (FGL).

The League allows classrooms taking part in the Classroom to Food Market Pipeline (CFMP) to compete with one another each month for who has the biggest harvest by weight. The first two months of the League are sponsored in part by Bulldog Printing.

Nearly 200 students from 10 classrooms in 4 different schools will participate in this inaugural season. These four schools are Cone Elementary (Greensboro), Dillard Middle (Goldsboro), Sugarloaf Elementary (Hendersonville), & Stokesdale Elementary (Stokesdale). Both Cone and Sugarloaf Elementaries are veterans of theĀ  CFMP having taken part last year as well.
