Mothers Day: Langley events for her special day

Is Mom a green thumb?

Several local events on the Mothers Day weekend are garden-oriented.

Posy

The Langley Centennial Museum invites kids to make a gift for mom.

“Our mothers do so much for us on a daily basis and this program is a way to give back through showing appreciation for them,” said Township Arts and Culture programmer Maggie Lukban. “Kids and their moms will enjoy spending time together while creating a beautiful flower pot and then taking it home to watch it blossom.”

Plant a Posy: Mother’s Day Fun runs at the museum, at 9135 King St. in Fort Langley, on Saturday, May 9, with a morning session from 10 a.m. until 11 a.m. and an afternoon session from noon to 1 p.m. The cost is $15.75 per child, plus mom.

To register in advance, drop in to any Township community recreation facility, or call the museum at 604-532-3536.

Hello, kitties

The CARES cat shelter has annuals, perennials, vegetables, herbs, heirloom tomatoes, grasses and more at its plant sale.

The second annual plant sale is Saturday and Sunday at the PetSmart store on the Langley Bypass.

Stop by from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. to get a jump on spring growing.

Seedy fun

The Langley Environmental Partners Society has a celebration Sunday at the Langley Demonstration Garden.

There’s high tea, seedlings and fruit treats for sale.

And at 12:30, learn about container gardening.

The 1:30 p.m. session is about seed saving with David Catzel of Glorious Organics Farm. People can also swap seeds.

The Bloom Market is at the Fort Langley Community Hall Mother’s Day weekend.

Admission is donated to charity. The cost is $2 for adults while anyone 12 and younger is admitted free.

The market runs 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day.

The market takes place several times each year. This one features more than 25 artisans offering fine art, jewelry, baby items, home decor, treats and flowers.

Two days

The Aldergrove Elks Club has activites May 8 and 9.

The annual 2015 Charity Garden Event includes specials, food trucks both days and a flea market, and craft sale on Saturday.
