The first class will be from noon to 3 p.m. on Saturday.

How to Make and Use Herbal Tinctures & Glycerites will be an herbal workshop in the school’s Botanical Medicine Herb Lab, devoted to discovering the art of tincturing.

Class attendees who wish to make a tincture or glycerite may do so with an added $10 fee.

The second class will be from 2-4 p.m. on Feb. 10.

Fertile Feast: How to Eat Deliciously while You’re Trying to Conceive will feature reproductive endocrinologist Angela Thyer and dietitian Judy Simon and the class will learn to prepare a tasty winter meal while learning tips on food, fertility, and cooking in the school’s nutrition kitchen.
