This month, “Brownie” the hamster was treated to fresh microgreen radishes grown by one of the classes at Sugarloaf Elementary School currently competing in our new Food Growing League.
Cone Elementary vs Sugarloaf Elementary vs Stokesdale Elementary
This is the first series of match ups of the new Food Growing League (FGL). We’d like to thank Cone, Sugarloaf, and Stokesdale Elementaries for participating. Dillard Middle is being moved to a separate division (NC1B) due to weather/scheduling issues. Thanks also to Bulldog Printing for helping sponsor the 1st Round.

Cone Elementary students last week completed this month’s Classroom to Food Market Pipeline by planting, growing, harvesting, and finally giving beet microgreens to the Piedmont Wildlife Rehab to help feed turtles in their care.
Students plan to do it again in December with their Garden Cress harvest.
Thank you to Dame’s Chicken & Waffles for financially supporting this program at Cone Elementary.
On Thursday November 2nd, Classroom to Food Market Pipeline (CFMP) training was held in the auditorium of Dillard Middle School for their entire 8th grade.
On Halloween Day at Cone Elementary, 4th graders got to play the new version of the nutrition card game Food Bike.
In addition to teaching about the health benefits of vegetables, fruits, herbs, and spices, Food Bike is being used to start the Promo Materials activity for students where they make flyers and table toppers promoting a particular food.
Cone Elementary 4th Graders had their first harvest of tendergreens on Friday, October 20th. The harvest is part of the Classroom to Food Market Pipeline (CFMP) at Cone sponsored this month by Emma Keys Flat Top Burgers.
Students watered their greens for two weeks before the harvest.
Teams took turns cutting their tendergreens to find out how much they weighed.
Team 3 took first place to start off the growing season that will run until May featuring seven more foods to be planted.
The full harvest was delivered to a nearby animal hospital to be used as rabbit food.
