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.

Cone Elementary rejoins the Food Growing League for Round 3

Welcome back Cone Elementary!

Scheduling setbacks caused by back to back hurricanes and other issues popping up along the way delayed Cone Elementary from taking part in the first two rounds of the Food Growing League this year.

Fortunately, things are back on track just in time for Round 3 when Cone Elementary finished building their Portable Gardens and getting them planted with Radishes a few days before Snow Storm Diego blanketed Greensboro with 13 inches of snow.

This will be Cone’s second year in the League and their third year in the overall program.

Round 1 (Tendergreens) 2018-2019 Fall Season – Food Growing League

We kick off the 1st Round of the Fall Season of the 2018-2019 Food Growing League with the 1st Match of Sugarloaf Elementary (Hendersonville) vs. Cone Elementary (Greensboro) and 2nd Match of Eastern Wayne High (Goldsboro) vs. Invest Collegiate Middle (Charlotte). Unfortunately, due to a tight schedule caused by back to back hurricanes, Cone Elementary was not able to take part this month. We hope to see them back in November.

This season we’ve introduced “Pro-rated” growing to account for weather delays and other issues that alter growing schedules.

This means if a school takes longer than the standard two weeks from plant to harvest, their final harvest numbers are adjusted to show an estimate of their weights if they were harvested on the 14th day as scheduled. Classes with Pro-rated harvest numbers will have a “P” next to their team number and harvest total.
