This is the 1st Round Match Up video showing which classrooms will be competing against each other in the Inaugural Round of the Food Growing League (FGL) sponsored in part by Bulldog Printing.
Nearly 200 students in 10 Classrooms using the Classroom to Food Market Pipeline (CFMP) program from 4 Schools: Cone Elementary, Dillard Middle, Stokesdale Elementary, and Sugarloaf Elementary make up the participants of this debut season of the FGL.
Because Sugarloaf’s entire 4th grade and Dillard’s entire 8th grade are competing, each classroom is divided into Class A, B, C, & D to identify them. Both the single classrooms from Cone and Stokesdale are also listed as Class A.
The Competition Video for this 1st Round will be posted in late January/early February after all classroom harvests have been completed.
Following their December Training Session, 5th Grade AIG students at Stokesdale Elementary planted their first seeds of the season on Wednesday, January 3rd thanks to the sponsorship of Bulldog Printing.
In two weeks, their beet microgreen crop will be ready to harvest.
Beets are one of the three cold weather seeds selected for this extra cold winter season.
On Wednesday, December 13th, 5th grade AIG (Academically or Intellectually Gifted) students at Stokesdale Elementary began building their 3 Bottle Top Portable Garden Mini Bins (PG3’s).
The students will add soil and plant seeds the first week of 2018.
