Round 3 of the Food Growing League Fall 2019-2020 season brings us one step closer to the Championship featuring Leesville Road Middle (Raleigh) versus Cone Elementary (Greensboro) and Northview Middle (Hickory) competing with Stokesdale Elementary (Stokesdale) for the best radish microgreen harvest.
Round 2 of the Food Growing League Fall 2019-2020 season continues growing gardencress this time with Stokesdale Elementary (Stokesdale) back to take on Leesville Road Middle (Raleigh) and Cone Elementary (Greensboro) squaring off with Northview Middle (Hickory).
Round 2’s Pet Food Sales had a surprising result.
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.
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!

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!
Charlotte’s Invest Collegiate Middle took the top spot with a 4-0 record to win both their Conference B Title and the overall Food Growing League Spring Season Championship with the tallest basil plants.
Hendersonville’s Sugarloaf Elementary won the Conference A Title and Pleasant Garden Elementary received first place for both the number of plants sold at 45 and most money raised with $200 going towards their school’s technology fund.

Congratulations again to the winners and special thanks to all the students and especially the teachers who made this season possible.
We’ll see everyone again for the Fall Season October through January when schools will be vying for the best microgreen harvest by weight.
