KNITTING + BUNNIES

In The Making — the super-cool “maker” space located in downtown’s American Alley — will be hosting a hands-on workshop on Saturday, March 24, from 10 a.m.-noon, with artist and knitwear designer Lily Reid demonstrating how to make adorable knitted rabbits. Excellent as Easter gifts, the squishable bunnies are made from a simple square of knitting, and participants who can already do the basic knit stitch will go home with their own brand new rabbit toy — and few neat new knitting tricks they’ll have picked up along the way. Ages 12 and up. All materials included. 122 American Alley. $65. Inthemakingpetaluma.com

LIBRARY + DAILY ACTS + ‘DEMONSTRATION’ GARDEN

This Saturday, from 10 a.m.-3 p.m., Petaluma’s Daily Acts will be leading a day of planting, landscaping and doing good deeds, as the group begins Phase II of creating a “water-wise” and edible “demonstration” garden at the Petaluma Regional Library. The butterfly-and-pollinator-friendly project will eventually become a site for education, classes and sculpture display. Volunteers are needed for various tasks. Lunch and snacks will be provided. Sign up in advance at DailyActs.org or by calling (707) 789-9664.

‘BACK TO THE GARDEN’ + ‘HARLOT, HEROINE OR HERETIC’

One more “garden” item, sort of. Historian Kayleen Asbo presents a lecture in conjunction with the Petaluma Historical Museum’s current show, ‘Women and the Search for Wisdom.’ The afternoon event (part of the Museum’s Sunday Salon series) will be an exploration, through art, poetry and live music, of the many themes of paradise (lost and found) that are carried in the ancient tales of Eve and Mary Magdalene. Sunday, March 25, 4 p.m. $25 downstairs seating, $30 preferred balcony seating. Refreshments included. Then, on Monday, March 26, the Museum’s other current series, ‘Women, Sex and Politics in Art, Music and Literature,’ continues with a presentation (including live music) focusing on the mythic figure of Salome, who may have gotten a bad rap at the hands of composer Richard Strauss and playwright Oscar Wilde. $30. Petaluma Historical Library and Museum, 20 Fourth St. PetalumaMuseum.com.

‘ALL THE WILD HORSES’ + IVO MARLOH + ELLIS AUDITORIUM

SRJC’s Spring Cinema Series continues with a special appearance by filmmaker Ivo Marloh, who will be interviewed by SRJC film instructor Mike Traina, before a screening of Marloh’s astonishing ‘All the Wild Horses,’ a thrilling documentary about the Mongol Derby, an annual horse race across Mongolia, on wild horses, covering hundreds of miles. The interview begins at 6 p.m., and the screening begins at 7 p.m. Wednesday, March 28. $6 ($5 for students). Carole L. Ellis Auditorium, 680 Sonoma Mountain Parkway.

DAVE GOULD + ‘GARDENING 101’

Speaking of gardening and the library, Master Gardener Dave Gould presents a talk on the basics of soil preparation, and everything else needed to keep a garden blooming for years. This event is presented by the UC Master Gardener Program of Sonoma County. Saturday, March 24, 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Petaluma Regional Library, 100 Fairgrounds Drive. Free.

BOURBON + FOOD + HISTORY

Start salivting. Five delicious food courses (created by Preferred Sonoma Caterers), will be served to compliment five unique bourbons (selected by WIllibee’s Wines and Spirits). Experts will share details and insights about each dish and every drink, as a truly “spirited” fundraiser for the Petaluma Museum Association, now celebrating its 40th year of service to the community. Thursday, March 29, 6 p.m. $60-$70. 20 Fourth St. Tix: PetalumaMuseum.com.

‘AMADEUS’ + CINNABAR THEATER

Peter Shaffer’s play about madness, Mozart, and the musician who may have murdered him finally gets the up-close-and-personal Cinnabar treatment courtesy of director Jennifer King and an all-star cast (Look for the interview with co-stars Richard Pallaziol and Aaron Wilton in next week’s Argus-Courier). The play opens its three-weekend run on Friday, March 30, 8 p.m. $15-$35. CinnabarTheater.com.
