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.
1st Block students at Ragsdale High School harvested 5 bins in a single class as part of their Classroom to Food Pantry Pipeline (CFPP) with Hand to Hand Food Pantry sponsored by Sonya Hamilton State Farm.
This is a bit of feat for a class of 22 harvesting, cleaning, and reseeding the equivalent of seven 12 Bottle Portable Garden Bins (12BPG) because 4 of the 5 bins were the larger grey 18 Bottle Portable Garden Bins (18BPG) that each equal 1 1/2 12 BPG’s.
Parts of the harvest were filmed for an upcoming video to air on local television as part of a Gift of Giving Grant sponsored by the Four Seasons Town Centre.
Here are some highlights as we head into the PitchPocalypse business plan pitching contest later this week.
ReBuildUp will be holding a demo for teachers of our economic literacy game Economy, Jr. on Wednesday, July 15th 6-8pm at Central Library [map] in Downtown Greensboro across from the Children’s Museum and again the next evening Thursday, July 16th 7-9pm at Vance Chavis Library [map]. Instructors on a tight schedule are welcome to pop in at their convenience.
Economy, Jr. shows students both sides of the economic coin with half of them playing as customers spending a month’s paycheck on necessities trying to avoid bankruptcy and the other half as merchants trying to sell enough to cover costs and post a profit.

Exit surveys show participants walk away with a strong appreciation for what their parents go through, the value of education, and the importance of getting a good job before having kids.
Economy, Jr. can be held for up to 32 students in a single class period with 3 volunteers or over 300+ students in a day with just 7 volunteers. Contact us if you have any questions.
