Looking for a program designed for YOU about everything botanical you want to know?
Take advantage of this NEW offering!
Abby is now offering Short Term Apprenticeships... If you're missing conferences and botanical education, or bummed about the lack of classes, or always wanted to study with Abby, Private Apprenticeships are the right choice for YOU.
Abby has so much experience teaching botany, herbalism, wildcrafting, foraging and medicine making! Learn more about Abby here if you haven't met her already...
Here’s how it works...
Apprentices spend 1 to 3 days with Abby for hands-on education about plants. Whether your interest is botany, wildcrafting, foraging, cooking wild foods, herbalism or medicine-making, we design your days TOGETHER so that YOU get the most out of it.
You can come to the gorgeous mountains and rivers of western North Carolina! Or Abby can come to you, if you provide transportation fees (the government mileage rate) plus food and lodging.
Here's what you can learn in a Short Term Apprenticeship...
You can contact Abby to discuss what you are interested in learning in a private apprenticeship!
Here's some ideas from past apprentices:
Always wanted to know botany to help with your plant ID, but felt intimidated? Get an Intro to Botany at your own pace.
Want to go deeper into Botany? Let’s go to the woods and practice!
Always dreamed of incorporating more wild foods into your diet, but don’t know where to start? Come on! We can even forage, cook, and eat together!
Always wanted to make herbal medicines to empower yourself, your family/community, and your home first aid kit? Just tell us what you want to learn and Abby will design a personal class just for you.
Want a combination of these? It’s all about you, the sky’s the limit!
