Dillard Middle grows greens for guinea pigs

8th graders at Dillard Middle School provided fresh tendergreens to feed pet guinea pigs from their first harvest of the school year. The microgreens were grown in class using water bottles and other common materials as part of the Classroom to Food Market Pipeline (CFMP) program.

Cone ES feeds turtles w/ classroom harvest

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.

Cone Elementary’s 1st harvest sponsored by Emma Keys Burgers

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.

Classroom Farming returns to Cone Elementary

On Friday October 6th, Fourth graders at Cone Elementary resumed the Classroom to Food Market Pipeline (CFMP). This month of the CFMP is sponsored by Emma Keys Flat Top Grill.

Students in teams of 2 got the chance to build their own mini-Portable Gardens that they’ll be in charge of for the remainder of the school year.

This year’s version of the CFMP brings with it a new food to plant each month.
