Help ReBuildUp Celebrate our 5th Anniversary

March 1st marks our 5th year in operation. You can help us grow this year by purchasing your own custom direct-to-garment t-shirt.

We’ve spent the last five years trying out a lot of ideas and the result is our Food Growing League. We’re hoping to test out a new League this Spring and any additional funds help speed up the process.

Thanks for all your support in the past and going forward even if it’s just checking in from time to time to see what’s going on.

Thank you note from Sugarloaf Elementary

Students in Mrs. Dalton’s class were kind enough to send us a note personally thanking ReBuildUp for helping bring the Food Growing League to their classroom.

We’d in turn like to thank Sugarloaf Elementary for being one of the first schools to join the program and for continually providing us with valuable feedback on how to improve the program.

Looking forward to hearing your thoughts on the new and improved Spring Season starting in February.

plus Class & Team Ranking


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.
