You might not be a gardener, but many people are -- and over the next few weeks, seeds will be planted all over that will produce vegetables, flowers, herbs and more. With that in mind, you should know about continuing education classes we offer that could truly change your life in ways that you might never have considered. One focuses on creative ways to cook with vegetables, another on the benefits of essential oils. Spring is a time of renewal and rebirth and classes like these fit right into that theme.
