The first class is March 1, and covers drip-irrigation design and installation. Other classes will include learning how to prune, programming your irrigation controller, and plant care in the desert.

• More than 100 volunteers from Choice Hotels International will be hard at work outside the Civitan Village in north Phoenix on Thursday. They’ll be building a new outdoor area and garden for the foundation. Civitan provides life-skills training for the developmentally disabled.

• The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim spring training trolley is back on Mill Avenue in Tempe. The free service takes fans to and from Mill Avenue for games at Tempe Diablo Stadium.

This year, two trollies have been added from Tempe to the Chicago Cubs’ park in Mesa.
