On Monday, January 23rd, middle school students at Greensboro Day School spent the day learning about how to build Portable Gardens to grow and harvest microgreens as part of their Classroom to Food Market Pipeline (CFMP) with Tessa Farm to Fork.
On Tuesday, January 3rd, students at Noble Academy kicked off the first day of school building their Portable Garden bins as part of their Classroom to Food Market Pipeline (CFMP) with program sponsor Tessa Farm to Fork.
Students plan to have all bins setup by the end of the week with their first harvest and delivery of microgreens scheduled for Tuesday, January 17th.
Come out to Tessa on the evening of Tuesday, Jan. 17th and Wednesday, Jan. 18th to get your fill of these student grown greens.
On Wednesday evening, November 16th, Ragsdale High School joined 14 other schools in Guilford County to receive a “Gift of Giving” grant sponsored by Four Seasons Town Centre. The grant is made in partnership with Guilford County Schools’ (GCS) Character Development Initiative to fund programs that promote student service-learning.
Part of the Ragsdale’s grant money will go toward adding five more Portable Gardens to its existing Classroom to Food Pantry Pipeline (CFPP) to benefit Parkwood Baptist Church’s Hand to Hand Food Pantry.
In mid-January 2017, a :30 second video of this project in action will be shown by GCS and local media.
