The weather outside is frightful, so what better time for the Manor Garden Club to turn its thoughts to spring and summer.

Master gardener Ramon Gonzales, aka Mr. Brown Thumb, will lead a free workshop on the ins and outs of seed starting, 7:30 p.m., Monday, at Luther Memorial Church, 2500 W. Wilson Ave.

Bring your own seeds and containers; the garden club will provide the soil. All are welcome to attend.
