Food Explorers

May 19 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Registration is required – call the Children’s Room at 781-631-1481, Ext. 217 or 237. 


Join us for Food Explorers, the Abbot Library’s newest afterschool STEM program for kids! Follow your food as it goes from seed to compost and farm to table. Each session will include stories and activities, as well as a take-home craft or simple science experiment to help us explore and connect to the food we eat. 



This month we are celebrating National Learn about Composting Day with a worm- and compost-themed story time. Get ready to get your hands dirty and make some compost stew, learn about wiggly worms and their very important garden jobs, and how to use your fruit and veggie scraps to help your garden grow!


This monthly program is best suited for children in kindergarten through second grade. Pre-registration is required as space is limited — to register please call the Children’s Room at 781-631-1481, Ext. 217 or 237.



This program is in-person and will be held outdoors in the library’s Secret Garden. We will be adhering to current social distancing guidelines and COVID-19 safety protocols. Please dress for the weather, and note that masks are required for all participants and caregivers.


This program is supported by the Oliver P. Killam, Jr. Fund.
