We’ll be keeping an eye on the weather this weekend — a chance of rain and snow and, if we’re lucky, temperatures mainly above freezing. Potential sloppiness aside, here are some things to do in the Wichita area this weekend, especially on Saturday — including sitting in on spring-gardening classes. Take that, winter!
