Moms invited to ‘Seedy Sunday’

This Mother’s Day, why not treat mom to a fun, unique experience that will create memories and help enhance the environment?

Chocolates are nice and flowers are too, but this Mother’s Day, why not treat mom to a fun, unique experience that will create memories and help enhance the environment?

Seedy Sunday, a free community event, will be held on Sunday, May 11, noon to 3pm, to celebrate Mother’s Day and mark the opening of the season for the Langley Demonstration Garden. The event will take place rain or shine in the Garden, located in the Derek Doubleday Arboretum in the 21200 block of Fraser Highway. Plenty of parking and covered shelter will be provided.

An interactive gardening extravaganza, Seedy Sunday will give moms and kids the chance to learn from local experts, exchange ideas, and swap seeds in a comfortable, scenic, social setting.

“We invite the public to spend a little time on Mother’s Day visiting the Langley Demonstration Garden and participating in this fun, interactive event. Whether you are new to gardening or a seasoned green thumb, there will be something for everyone,” said Stephanie Captein, Agriculture Program Coordinator with the Langley Environmental Partners Society (LEPS).

The event is being hosted with participation from LEPS, the Township of Langley, Kwantlen Polytechnic University Seed Library, BC Farm Museum, and Fraser Common Farms/Glorious Organics.

During the event, guests can listen to expert guest speakers, play in the kids’ craft corner, view exhibits and displays, and take part in a Seed Saving workshop that will be provided by David Catzel of Glorious Organics at 1pm. High Tea will be available for purchase from the Suburban Spoon food truck and participants are invited to bring along their extra seeds to participate in a seed exchange.

“As far as we know, this may be the very first Seedy Sunday event held in Langley,” Captein said. “LEPS is very excited to be hosting this event with the Langley Demonstration Garden and is grateful for the support of our participating partners!”
