Schoolyard Garden Coming Soon to Barton!
Thursday, January 24, 2013 10:10 AM


Barton received two grants to create a schoolyard garden. A big thank you goes to Whole Kids Foundation and the University of Minnesota Schoolyard Ecology Explorations -- as well as parents Sheila Eldred and Sarah Leslie for heading up this project.

The garden will be located by the playground on the SW corner of the school, and installed the spring.

Our hope is that this garden will function as a true component of Open Education; one that involves the entire Barton community. If you are interested in sharing your gardening talent or passion, see story below or contact Sheila at or Sarah at
