Make spanakopita (spinach pie), Revithia (chick pea soup), Horiatiki (Greek salad) and finish with a delicious dessert of walnut Baklava. At the end of the class, sit down to a feast.

Get into the swing of dancing

The West Coast Swing class offers a chance to get exercise while learning a new skill. West Coast Swing is an adaptable partner dance that can be enjoyed with a wide variety of music and genres. Learn to create a conversation between yourself and your partner through movement. While the leader is responsible for selecting the dance patterns, both partners are encouraged to add their own style and interpretation of music to the dance partnership. This freedom of expression means that no two dances are the same and therefore every dance is a new dance. Learn the foundations of West Coast Swing and the basic structure and connection that add originality to your dance. Instructor Cheryl Noonan believes in creating a patient, relaxing environment for students.

Learn the basics of setting up a greenhouse

In the Greenhouse Design and Operation class, you’ll discover the basics of greenhouse management. Learn about common styles of greenhouses and materials used to cover the structure (glazing). Heating and cooling options will be emphasized, and some basic calculations will be presented to determine heating and cooling needs for your greenhouse. Discover passive techniques for heating and cooling to save on energy costs. Siting considerations and regulatory issues will also be covered. Instructor Richard C. “Charlie” Shultz is the Lead Faculty in SFCC’s Controlled Environment Agriculture Program, including hydroponics and aquaponics.

Learn the history of the Byzantine Empire (330—1453 CE), its founder, Constantine the Great, and other important emperors and learn what life was like for ordinary people.
