Members of the Saugus Garden Club have been busy in recent weeks with fun and good works. After a successful plant sale on June 18 in connection with the Strawberry Festival, several members of the Garden Club have been joining other volunteers in the community garden, where fresh vegetables are being grown for the Saugus Food Bank. This week a group of Garden Club members began working on a garden renovation in East Saugus at The Rubin Home, which provides residents with assisted living and dementia and Alzheimer’s care. After weeding and pruning existing plants, they are working on choosing new perennials for the area that will be planted this summer.
It’s not all hard work though! On Saturday, July 9, Saugus Garden Club members attended the Salem Garden Club’s Garden Stroll of 17 personal and public gardens around the Historic Salem Common Neighborhood. The stroll was followed by lunch at the Hawthorne Hotel.
