Food Growing League Scores – 2019-2020 Spring Season


The Food Growing League was delayed this season just like everything else.

Because some schools started late and didn’t get a chance to record results before stay at home orders, we only have two schools: Pleasant Garden and Stokesdale Elementaries that managed to take plants home and record some or all of their results.

Thanks to all teachers and students that took part as much as they could in the midst of everything else. We’re updating the Food Growing League to accommodate distance learning along with other updates for the fall season.


Food Growing League 2019-2020 Spring Season Officially Starts

The February through May Spring Season of the Food Growing League begins with eight schools from across North Carolina vying for the tallest Cherry Tomato, Basil, and JalapeƱo plants.

In May, classes have the option of holding a Mother’s Day Plant Sale selling off what they’ve grown over the Spring as a School fundraiser.

This competition features two conferences made up of four schools each.

Conference PS1A consists of Cone Elementary (Greensboro), Stokesdale Elementary (Stokesdale), Pleasant Garden Elementary (Pleasant Garden), and Leesville Road Middle (Raleigh).

Conference PS1B is made up of Northview Middle (Hickory), Woodington Middle (Kinston), Oak Grove High (Winston-Salem), and DH Conley High (Greeneville).

Videos showcasing the results of Rounds 1-4 for each conference will be posted at the end of the season in late May. The winners of both conferences will be face off in a separate Championship video that decides who will be the Spring Season 2019-2020 Food Growing League Champion.

The Championship video will also share who the Plant Sale Spring Season Champion is as well.

Good Luck to all competitors and we look forward to seeing your results in May!
