The time has come for me to bite the bullet & take on an assistant! **In a nutshell: do you have hours to trade to learn as we go about the business of tending herb gardens & an apothecary? (And are you awesome??)** .
I see this arrangement as being mutually beneficial: you value what I offer & would enjoy trading your time to learn some things, & I would enjoy your assistance, having you around, & some one on one time with a fellow herb enthusiast. I do enjoy teaching & although this isn’t primarily a formal teaching arrangement, there is plenty of practical hands-on instruction inside & outside of the mundane tasks of weeding & garden maintenance, washing bottles, processing herbs, & doing inventory!
The fun stuff interspersed in there (depending on what you think is fun) may include some medicine making, tincture pressing, taking home extra plants or weedy herbs for your own medicine, etc. (If you don’t have space to garden you are welcome to plant in one of my beds this year & tend to your own space after we’re done our time together!) About me:
-easy to be around
-generally pretty playful -community folk herbalist with extensive urban herb beds
-worked with plants, cut flowers & herbs for 19 years
-“organic master gardener” (blech-I’m just a gardener, k?)
-introverted plant geek & bookworm with some extroverted life skills
-swear like a sailor
I need you to:
-be easy to be around
-have some kind of background in herbalism or some herbal experience
-have attention to detail
-have a sense of humour
-be responsible, solid & reliable
-be cool with me swearing like a sailor (but I’ll do my best to be on my best behavior at least at first!! Lol)
How to apply:
