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.

These harvests helped feed birds, chickens, turtles, hamsters, and even groundhogs.

Special thanks to Cone, Stokesdale, and Sugarloaf Elementaries for participating. Due to a schoolwide schedule change, Cone Elementary could not take part in the final round.

Thanks also to our sponsors Bulldog Printing, Pita Delite, and 1618 Concepts for helping fund this program.

If your school didn’t get a chance to participant this Spring, we’re currently recruiting for next fall.
