Round 1 (Tendergreens) 2018-2019 Fall Season – Food Growing League

Click thumbnails for printable images of each Match plus Class & Team Ranking


We kick off the 1st Round of the Fall Season of the 2018-2019 Food Growing League with the 1st Match of Sugarloaf Elementary (Hendersonville) vs. Cone Elementary (Greensboro) and 2nd Match of Eastern Wayne High (Goldsboro) vs. Invest Collegiate Middle (Charlotte). Unfortunately, due to a tight schedule caused by back to back hurricanes, Cone Elementary was not able to take part this month. We hope to see them back in November.

This season we’ve introduced “Pro-rated” growing to account for weather delays and other issues that alter growing schedules.

This means if a school takes longer than the standard two weeks from plant to harvest, their final harvest numbers are adjusted to show an estimate of their weights if they were harvested on the 14th day as scheduled. Classes with Pro-rated harvest numbers will have a “P” next to their team number and harvest total.

Food Growing League – Round 1 Match Ups

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.
