Herbal Apprenticeships

We are now accepting applications for the 2023 Herbalist Apprenticeship Program. Students are accepted only once a year. The session runs from May 2023 to April  2024. Classes are held one weekend per month. Last year there was a waiting list, and we recommend that you apply early in order to secure your place.
