Thank you Reno Palombit along with NC Family and Consumer Sciences for inviting us out again this year to the NC CTE Summer Convention here in Greensboro. Both Sessions of our Classroom to Food Market Pipeline (CFMP) hit full attendance and all 40 Portable Garden Mini Kits were distributed to attendees.
If you didn’t get a chance to make the Sessions, you can learn more by visiting our Schools page here.
Attendees will receive a Portable Garden kit to grow in class this fall. Limit 20 attendees per session. The Portable Garden is part of ReBuildUp’s Classroom to Food Market Pipeline (CFMP) that shows students how to grow vegetables, fruits, herbs, & spices in class or at home using every day materials like water bottles.
Both our first session from 1:00-1:50pm and our second session 2:00-2:50pm will be held in the Meadowbrook Room. Attendees will learn how to setup, harvest, and clean their Portable Garden.
Learn more about bringing the CFMP to your School here.
We mistakenly listed the Tuesday, July 25th 1pm NC CTE Opening General Session time as our 1st session time that will take place the next day on July 26th, Wednesday at 1pm & again at 2pm. We have corrected the post below accordingly. Sorry for any inconvenience (you know how crazy conventions can get).
We look forward to holding our Portable Garden demo at the NC CTE Convention this week so students can grow food in the classroom to improve food security in their communities.
The Convention is being held at the Koury Convention Center in Greensboro. Our first session will be at 1pm on Wednesday and our second will be right after at 2pm.
