Our 2023 Apprenticeship Class is filled for 2023 - if you are interested in our 2024 cohort please sign up below. Also we will have our Spring Medicinal Herb Series starting in April!
When: In-person fourth Saturday of the month from February till November along with supplemental online modules per month and a private community group for questions and information.
Who: This is a hands-on apprenticeship where we will be learning how to grow, manage and harvest plants for nutritive and medicinal use.
Where: Within 15 miles of our apothecary in Sperryville, Virginia - at local farms and venues
The what and the how:
During this ten month program you will be learning how to garden and creating a home apothecary and remedies to support you and yours. We'll gather one day per month in person and work through one module per month.
We will come together to taste, touch and experience herbs and plants from our best growing and propagating methods, as we're tending the community garden, harvesting herbs, making medicinal remedies and finding ways to effectively use the plants and their medicines.
The nature of this course is working hands on together on our team project - in other words you will be getting dirty!
Each time we are together we will make a meal and experience herbal remedies that inspire and create herbal goodness for you and yours.
