Webster First Federal Credit Union Supports “Plant-tastic!”
Bruce Torrey, manager of Webster First Federal Credit Union walked into the
Saugus Public Library and asked to speak with the Head of Children’s Services
to ask how he could support summer reading and programming.  We immediately
thought of the Children’s “Plant-tastic!” nature program and their amazing crew.


The “Plant-tastic!” program is held every Tuesday afternoon at 3:30 all summer long.
It teaches children about gardening, and the joy of growing your own vegetables,
herbs, and flowers.  The children started plants from seed, learned about sundials,
painted plant markers, and enjoyed other nature based activities. They often read
a short book to kick off each class, and end with a tasty treat from the garden!

Program leaders Nancy Sayles, Maureen Murray, and Kathy Murphy, are a dynamic
group of women who constantly think of new ways to engage the community. 
They're currently looking for recipes so children can taste the vegetables, fruits,
and herbs they grow, in dishes from around the world. 

The round "pizza garden" contains ingredients for making pizza sauce and toppings.
The box garden contains green beans, broccoli, zucchini and peppers.  It will soon be
growing pumpkins!   They just planted strawberries too! 

Thank you Bruce Torrey for helping to develop a new generation of gardeners!
