CFMP Level I: Nutrition & Marketing – Students learn how easy it is to grow different types of microgreens inside their classroom or even in their room at home. Teams of two students (or 3 if necessary) will each receive a 3 Bottle Top Portable Garden Mini Bin (PG3) to grow that month’s selected seed in class over a two week period (growing schedule provided). The team with the largest harvest by weight will receive PG3 containers to use at home. Level I also lets students see the business side of things with Food Bike, Promo Materials, and Discount Cards.
