Friend of the Blog and Advertiser West Seattle Montessori School is holding a Plant Sale this Saturday, May 5.
It’ll be from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. It should be a good one.
Everyone is invited, Green Thumbs and Non-Green Thumbs alike.
You don’t even have to have school-age kids to stop by. It’s open to the whole community.
“We’ll have 500 plant starts that our first through third graders grew,” said Lori Buchsbaum, event organizer. “Our students grew a wide variety of vegetable starts. There will be a lot to choose from.”
Proceeds from the sale will go to upgrade the school’s greenhouse and to fund in-class botany courses at WS Montessori.
Nearby neighbor Village Green Nursery will have herbs and plants for sale there, too.
And how about this: According to the school’s website you can pre-order bouquets in student-decorated vases to pick up for Mother’s Day.
And if you do have school age kids, or know someone who does, West Seattle Montessori is now enrolling for the 2012 – 2013 academic school year. Inquire at the Plant Sale or by contacting the school directly.
The philosophy of the school is “Fostering Independence and Love of Learning.”
