March may be a windy and sometimes a wet month, but it's time to think about gardening, if you haven't already started. The WSU Extension Agency is offering classes for gardening & composting. As food prices continue to escalate (along with gas) it's a good investment to raise some of your own food. They also offer classes for making nutritious foods. Give them a call at (360) 470-1212 or visit their web site at www.lewiscounty.wsu
