Dillard Middle begins food growing

On Thursday November 2nd, Classroom to Food Market Pipeline (CFMP) training was held in the auditorium of Dillard Middle School for their entire 8th grade.

Some of the 75 8th graders who took part. Teams of students in each class will start their own Portable Gardens this week and continue the CFMP until the end of May.

Cone Elementary’s 1st harvest sponsored by Emma Keys Burgers

Cone Elementary 4th Graders had their first harvest of tendergreens on Friday, October 20th. The harvest is part of the Classroom to Food Market Pipeline (CFMP) at Cone sponsored this month by Emma Keys Flat Top Burgers.

Students watered their greens for two weeks before the harvest.

Teams took turns cutting their tendergreens to find out how much they weighed.

Team 3 took first place to start off the growing season that will run until May featuring seven more foods to be planted.

The full harvest was delivered to a nearby animal hospital to be used as rabbit food.

Classroom Farming returns to Cone Elementary

On Friday October 6th, Fourth graders at Cone Elementary resumed the Classroom to Food Market Pipeline (CFMP). This month of the CFMP is sponsored by Emma Keys Flat Top Grill.

Students in teams of 2 got the chance to build their own mini-Portable Gardens that they’ll be in charge of for the remainder of the school year.

This year’s version of the CFMP brings with it a new food to plant each month.
