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 Bike at Cone ES sponsored by Dame’s Chicken & Waffles

On Halloween Day at Cone Elementary, 4th graders got to play the new version of the nutrition card game Food Bike.

In addition to teaching about the health benefits of vegetables, fruits, herbs, and spices, Food Bike is being used to start the Promo Materials activity for students where they make flyers and table toppers promoting a particular food.

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.
