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.
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.
4th grade students at Sugarloaf Elementary in Hendersonville, NC setup multiple Portable Garden Bins in December to grow over the Holiday Break to harvest when they return to class.
