We’re hailing the arrival of Spring with Taza, Groundwork Somerville and more in this weekend’s Scout Picks.

Friday, 4/3

Tickets are still available for Groundwork Somerville’s 2015 Gala, which takes place tonight at Cuisine en Locale. Join the planet-conscious nonprofit for this annual party that celebrates the volunteers and interns that worked tirelessly throughout the last year.

Become a hero in the eyes of your kids by taking them to this workshop, where they’ll learn how to make “small inventions with a high ration of use to confiscation” including marshmallow launchers and rubber band shooters. $15 for Parts and Crafts members.

Dig Into Spring!
1-4 p.m., Free
Taza Chocolate
561 Windsor St.
Get your garden off on the right foot this year with a planting prep event at Taza Chocolate, where you’ll be able to purchase mulch made with Taza’s organic cacao hulls as well as “starter kits” of plants courtesy of Green City Growers. And, because food makes everything better, Doves and Figs will be on hand to sample spreads while the b.good food truck dishes out free kale smoothies.

Sunday, 4/5
Silents, Please: “The 10 Commandments”
2 p.m., $15 adults/$12 students and seniors
The Somerville Theatre
55 Davis Sq.
We told you about the Somerville Theatre’s new “Silents, Please” series back in our March/April print edition, but if you haven’t yet attended one of their screenings you probably won’t find one more fitting or timely than this Easter Sunday showing of “The 10 Commandments” (1923). With accompaniment from Jeff Rapsis on the organ.
