Food Growing League 2019-2020 Spring Season Officially Starts

The February through May Spring Season of the Food Growing League begins with eight schools from across North Carolina vying for the tallest Cherry Tomato, Basil, and Jalapeño plants.

In May, classes have the option of holding a Mother’s Day Plant Sale selling off what they’ve grown over the Spring as a School fundraiser.

This competition features two conferences made up of four schools each.

Conference PS1A consists of Cone Elementary (Greensboro), Stokesdale Elementary (Stokesdale), Pleasant Garden Elementary (Pleasant Garden), and Leesville Road Middle (Raleigh).

Conference PS1B is made up of Northview Middle (Hickory), Woodington Middle (Kinston), Oak Grove High (Winston-Salem), and DH Conley High (Greeneville).

Videos showcasing the results of Rounds 1-4 for each conference will be posted at the end of the season in late May. The winners of both conferences will be face off in a separate Championship video that decides who will be the Spring Season 2019-2020 Food Growing League Champion.

The Championship video will also share who the Plant Sale Spring Season Champion is as well.

Good Luck to all competitors and we look forward to seeing your results in May!

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.

2019-2020 FGL Fall Season Begins!

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!

Round 3 of the 2018-2019 Fall Season of the Food Growing League features Invest Collegiate Middle (Charlotte) versus Sugarloaf Elementary (Hendersonville) and Cone Elementary (Greensboro) making their season debut against Eastern Wayne High (Goldsboro). The heaviest radish microgreens determine the victor in this round.

Cone Elementary finally got their chance to rejoin the League after weather and scheduling delays in October and November. Unfortunately, due to Winter Storm Diego, Cone Elementary went 9 straight days out of school and unable to water their portable gardens contributing to lower their expected harvest weights.

Invest Collegiate Middle went on Winter Break before they had a chance to grow for Round 3 and they’ll be returning for the final round of the Fall Season this January.
