Turnip Truck Urban Fare in the Gulch is kicking off its series of free classes for 2012 on Thursday, with a session on herbal supplements led by the market's friendly and helpful supplements manager, Dolly Thomas.

Thomas "will dispel myths about certain supplements, make suggestions about ways to use them, offer suggestions for home remedies, and discuss steps to a healthy heart," according to the store's announcement. The class is scheduled for 6 p.m. this Thursday, Feb. 9, and 10 a.m. Saturday, Feb. 11.

Classes are free, but you need to register in advance, and seats are limited. For registration and info, contact Kathryn Johnson at kathryn@theturniptruck.com. Class participants will receive a 10 percent discount on groceries purchased at the time of the class, plus a $5 gift card toward grocery purchases during a return visit. The offers are valid only in the Gulch store, not at the original Turnip Truck in East Nashville.

Classes will continue on the second Thursday (6 p.m.) and Saturday (10 a.m.) of each month.

The next class, set for 6 p.m. Thursday, March 8, and 10 a.m. Saturday, March 10, "will concentrate on health food buzz words, including understanding the differences between organic, natural, and sustainable, as well as GMO stands for and why it’s important," The store says. "Future classes will focus on responsible meat and seafood sourcing, celiac disease and gluten-free foods, using local and seasonal produce with variety, beer tasting and pairing, and cooking with bulk items like trail mix and dried beans."

Turnip Truck Urban Fare is located at 321 12th Ave. S. in the Gulch, (615) 248-2000.
