Work days will be Fridays (medicine-making) from 9AM-4PM and/or Mondays (wild harvesting) from 3-6PM. There may also be farmers market work days or events that will be addressed on a case-by-case basis.

This apprenticeship requires a minimum 6-month commitment and there is no tuition for this program. We have between 2-3 apprentices at any time. You will often be working with our apothecary manager, Morgan, as well as Cameron. 

If you have a passion for supporting and serving your neighbors (both people and plants), if you have a basic knowledge of herbal medicine (or a willingness to learn), if you can dedicate your Friday and/or Monday afternoons to our mission and you are ready to make a commitment to our vision, please email us for an application: deeprootsapothekeandclinic@gmail.com
