April’s tendergreen planting got off to a late start due to Spring Break, but now with harvests done, we can report that Stokesdale Elementary Class A managed to win against undefeated Sugarloaf Elementary Class B in the 4th round of the 2017-2018 Food Growing League.
Below are infographics for each match in the round (so far). The infographics can be clicked on and printed out to display in the classroom to let students know how well they did this month.

This month, Cone Elementary’s harvest of microgreen radishes made their way to “Hansel & Gretel,” the two Groundhogs under Piedmont Wildlife Rehab’s care. Thanks again to Bulldog Printing for helping sponsor the Classroom to Food Market Pipeline (CFMP) at Cone.
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 the CFMP having taken part last year as well.
Follow this site, our FaceBook, or Twitter to get regular updates on the Match Up announcements and Competition videos each month to see whose winning.
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 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.
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.
Thank you Reno Palombit along with NC Family and Consumer Sciences for inviting us out again this year to the NC CTE Summer Convention here in Greensboro. Both Sessions of our Classroom to Food Market Pipeline (CFMP) hit full attendance and all 40 Portable Garden Mini Kits were distributed to attendees.
If you didn’t get a chance to make the Sessions, you can learn more by visiting our Schools page here.
Attendees will receive a Portable Garden kit to grow in class this fall. Limit 20 attendees per session. The Portable Garden is part of ReBuildUp’s Classroom to Food Market Pipeline (CFMP) that shows students how to grow vegetables, fruits, herbs, & spices in class or at home using every day materials like water bottles.
Both our first session from 1:00-1:50pm and our second session 2:00-2:50pm will be held in the Meadowbrook Room. Attendees will learn how to setup, harvest, and clean their Portable Garden.
