Food Growing League begins Fall Season 2018-2019

We’re excited to begin the Fall Season of the Food Growing League (FGL) this month that features 4 schools made up of 13 classes with over 280 students participating from October through January.

Cone Elementary (Greensboro), Sugarloaf Elementary (Hendersonville), Eastern Wayne High (Goldsboro), and Invest Collegiate Middle (Charlotte) will compete for the best Tendergreen, Garden Cress, Radish, and Kale microgreen harvests each month.

School and Team Rankings will be posted at the end of each month both as a video and printable infographics.
