It's March; the temperatures are warming (when the wind isn't at gale force), the first purple and orange crocuses are peeking out of the soil hoping for a little sunshine, and the Lyons Farmette (4121 Ute Highway) is slowly awakening from its winter slumber. The upcoming classes for the month of March are already beginning to fill up.

First up, an introduction to bee keeping on Saturday, March 10, at 1 p.m. Two weeks later on March 24, you can broaden your creative horizons with a class on calligraphy taught by Camille Fenn. The following day, on Sunday, March 25, it's “Wonderful Worms!” Learn the fine art of vermicomposting, build your own worm bin, and come home with a pound of worms!  And finally on the last weekend of March, Saturday, March 31 and Sunday April 1, there will be a Spring Gardening Intensive, taught by the Farmette's own Helen Skiba and Garrison Schulte.
