Karcher Middle School Courtyard Garden

In the spring of 2001, Lori Hintz, Burlington Area Garden Club member and teacher at Karcher Middle School in Burlington, WI, approached the club with student proposals to transform the Karcher Middle School Courtyard from its unused and unsightly area into a beautiful garden walkway and quiet study area. She had hoped for some help choosing appropriate plantings. Club members now cut, prune, plant, and clear on a regular basis and donate new plantings each spring.

Karcher Middle School students and faculty now have a beautiful courtyard garden to look out on, due to the dedication of our members.
