— New to the College Community Education line-up this fall is Home Brew Beer.

Caution: Home brewing leads to intense feeling of happiness, delicious beer and a lifelong home brewing habit. Home brewing: hobby, obsession, way of life.

“Brewing beer is fun and easy; if you can make mac and cheese from a box without help, you can make beer, and we’re going to show you how,” the college said in a release.

Taught by Marc Silva, the class meets Saturdays: 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sept. 30 and Oct. 14; 9 to 11:30 a.m. Oct. 7 and Nov. 4; and 9 a.m. to noon Oct. 21. Times may vary depending on brewing needs.

The cost is $110. Supplies are included.

Another class covers the basics of ecopsychology — the psychology of how we relate to nature and how we can use the therapeutic properties of nature in mental and physical health care.

Students will understand ecopsychology and ecotherapy to treat nature deficit disorder and other effects of separation from nature, as well as identify how ecotherapy heals the mind and body.

Learn horticultural therapy, animal-assisted therapy and how to incorporate ecopsychology into your practice. Taught by Rebecca Lexa, the class meets Wednesdays, 6 to 7:30 p.m. Sept. 27 through Nov. 1.
