Your Weekend Plans! March 25 to March 27

Here are several really awesome weekend events that require no Metrocard if you've got a good pair of walking shoes.
  1. Support The Bed-Stuy Farm Share (a CSA) by attending the lovely Melissa Danielle's "Birthday Presence" at Peaches Pantry. Bonus: You can win 4 hours of my services if you enter the raffle! Friday, 7 to 10pm, Bed-Stuy. (Info and RSVP.)
  2. Score and share clothes at the Brooklyn Clothing Exchange's swap*meet at the Macon Branch Library. Saturday, 11:30am to 3:30pm, Bed-Stuy. (Info & RSVP)
  3. Drop off your broken cell phone and dead laptop at the 5th Avenue Electronic Waste Recycling Event. Saturday, 10am to 4pm, Park Slope. (Info.
  4. Let Leda Meredith teach you how to preserve food by canning and picking at The Commons Brooklyn. Saturday, 1 to 3pm, Boerum Hill. (Info & Register.)
  5. Interested in joining a community garden? Prospect Heights Community Farm is holding a meeting. Saturday, 2pm, Prospect Heights. (Info.)
  6. Brooklyn Mutt Show II at the Brooklyn Lyceum!!!!!! A fundraiser for B.A.R.C. shelter and a brilliant spectacle for those of us who love dogs but don't have one. Saturday & Sunday, 11am to 7pm, Park Slope/Gowanus. (Info.)
  7. "Spring into Action" and participate in a class or two or all those remaining in the 40 Days of Yoga marathon. Sunday, 10am & 2pm, Fort Greene. (Info.)
  8. Yoga and pilates classes by donation at LaunchPad. Sunday, All day, Crown Heights. (Info.)
  9. Gardening 101 at The Brooklyn Botanical Garden. I'm dying to go and ask all those questions about growing plants that I'd be too embarrassed to ask in another setting. Sadly, this class is full and expensive, but a girl can dream can't she? Otherwise, a girl will just attend the free tour at 1pm. Sunday, 10am to 4pm, Prospect Heights. (Info.)
  10. It just feels really awkward to end a list at 9. Anything else worthwhile happening in Brooklyn? What are you doing this weekend? Leave a comment! I might bake pie with my friends this weekend, if I'm lucky.
