West Seattle Academy (at West Seattle Montessori, 11215 15th Ave SW), is hosting a special plant and baked goods sale in honor of Mother’s Day, and everyone is invited! Here is more information from Tara Requa, Lead Teacher at the school.
We hope you can make it to our 2nd annual Plant Sale to be held on Saturday May 7th, from 9 am-3 pm! The community is invited! The theme is “Who’s Your Mama!?” a playful celebration of the next day’s holiday — Mother’s Day.
Please join us for a fun Mother’s Day plant and gift sale including fresh flowers, plants, fruit and vegetables, beautiful bird houses, decorated vases filled with colorful bouquets and a Garden Fresh Bake Sale. The movie “Secret Garden” will be playing for kids with popcorn for sale!
We are also hosting a guest speaker.
