Opportunities: One-year apprenticeship (at zero cost) in herbalism
”The Herbalista apprenticeship blends community healthcare and herbal education with passionate service, and typically requires a 1 year commitment. There is no tuition fee for this program.
Please note, this is NOT an academic herbal training program and applicants must already have a solid foundation in herbal medicine, including some medicine making, materia medica, and the basics of western medical herbalism. A familiarity with TCM, Ayurveda, or other traditional herbal modality that provides an understanding of energetics is also helpful. If you don’t already have a valid first aid certification, you will need to schedule this training if accepted into our program.
As a community health initiative, Herbalista adapts our programming to the changing needs of our community. This has never been more important than during this pandemic. The schedule we have indicated below is what we are currently running, but we ask that all applicants be flexible and understand that details of the apprenticeship program can be subject to change!“
