With Mother's Day coming up on Sunday, flower sales will be through the roof. But you can one-up the traditional bouquet with tickets to Saturday's Arcadia Edible Garden Tour. Beginning at 9 a.m., you and your mom can be guided through nine Arcadia gardens, including Hal & Jill's Sweet Life Garden and David & Caroline Van Slyke's Boho Farm, tasting the very literal fruits of local gardeners' labors. The tour will showcase urban orchards, backyard herb and vegetable gardens, berry hedges, water ponds, chicken coops, and more, and the experts will offer tips to try their methods at home. The tour is $15 per person, free for children 7 and under, and concludes at 1 p.m.
