If you’re like me, the first tentative rays of spring sunshine get your gardening juices gurgling. But before you run out to buy those first fragile tomato and bell pepper plants, you might consider honing your planting skills. Soil Born Farms in Rancho Cordova is offering a delightful menu of spring gardening classes for food- and outdoorsy-types, from the “Save Your Garden from Pests and Pesticides” and “Irrigation Nuts and Bolts” to a solar cooking workshop (includes a solar panel cooker and pot!) and even a class on natural backyard beekeeping (where you learn not only the basics of beekeeping; but also explore what life is like in a honeybee colony).
