Fourth graders at Sugarloaf Elementary School fed their March Food Growing League harvest of Garden Cress to a dog. Remember to consult your veterinarian about what you can and can’t feed your dogs and cats.
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.
After 3 years of ReBuildUp’s food growing program in various NC schools, we’re happy to announce the launch of the Food Growing League (FGL).
The League allows classrooms taking part in the Classroom to Food Market Pipeline (CFMP) to compete with one another each month for who has the biggest harvest by weight. The first two months of the League are sponsored in part by Bulldog Printing.
Nearly 200 students from 10 classrooms in 4 different schools will participate in this inaugural season. These four schools are Cone Elementary (Greensboro), Dillard Middle (Goldsboro), Sugarloaf Elementary (Hendersonville), & Stokesdale Elementary (Stokesdale). Both Cone and Sugarloaf Elementaries are veterans of the CFMP having taken part last year as well.
