Exciting things are happening at BSG!
Felicity's Native Garden - COMING THIS SPRING! The small area to the west of door #5 will be planted this spring as a native garden. This garden will be planted in memory and honor of Felicity Miel-Crosby, our 3/4 teacher who played so many roles in our school for 20+ years. Planning work has begun with Felicity’s 4th graders and the Garden Team. We also recently found out that our garden project has been awarded a $500 Lorrie Otto Seeds For Education Grant from the national organization, Wild Ones! This organization supports native planting and natural landscapes. (Click here to read the blog for more info!)
We are all Stewards of Nature! The Garden Team collaborated with students to create this fun video that explains how the whole school can help the Spirit Garden thrive. We encourage all Barton parents to watch this short video with your children to help us all understand our collective responsibilities to care for our school garden. A special thanks to Barton Parent, Steven Gagner, for creating the film with our students!

This video shows off the bounty of learning opportunities for Barton students, the important contributions from our partners, and the hard work of our parent committee to get the garden growing.
