Want to build your botanical skillset and experience hands-in-the-earth learning in a beautiful farm setting? Experience the beautiful process of starting with seed to tending to harvest firsthand. We will cover seed sowing, transplants, divisions, perennials vs. annuals, plant life cycles, basic botany, and more!
The Homegrown Apothecary Apprenticeship will focus on learning by doing. It is hands-on and requires time in the elements working in the dirt. It covers the very basics of herbal medicine, how to grow herbs, plant identification, and herbal preparations. The Herbal Foundations Program is more of a lecture-based program with primarily classroom learning. We go in-depth on herbal actions, systems of the body, contraindications, methods of preparing a variety of herbal remedies, and we cover over 36 plants in detail.
