Mentorships and Apprenticeship

In Person Learning Opportunities with Chicken Coop Botanicals

Each of these Mentorships and the Apprenticeship is an ongoing program. Dedicate yourself to this for as long as you like or use this as a jumping off point to another opportunity. Cost is $125 a month (must commit to one month minimum). We will discuss schedule individually. Any program can be added as time continues and there is room. In addition to below descriptions bed and meals included when staying at Chicken Coop Botanicals. Additions to learning opportunities will be added as it seems appropriate to each individual. I approach basics systematically. However, many skills and lessons come in an organic manner and within the seasonal patterns of nature.

None of these programs offer a live in situation. However, for those traveling here monthly from a distance or we have a several day project there is a place to sleep and at anytime  we invite students to share our meals.
