Living Ayurveda Internship with Banyan Botanicals

The Living Ayurveda Internship (LAI) is an immersive program committed to inspiring the holistic stewardship of both our health and the environment through nature-based Ayurvedic training. LAI provides the opportunity to explore key concepts of Ayurveda while gaining hands-on experience with medicinal herb and vegetable cultivation.

LAI is an 11-week intensive program at our Banyan Botanicals Farm in Williams, Oregon, blending together Ayurveda and herbalism in a field-based setting. Our interns walk away from LAI with a better understanding of Ayurveda, a deeper relationship with nature and their own personal health, and the skills to practice bioregional Ayurveda in their own home environments.

This program is rigorous: interns need to be prepared physically and mentally to immerse themselves in the program and in community, working, learning, and living alongside other like-minded individuals.

Interns spend Monday through Thursday working alongside our farm team, at an average of 25 hours each week. There is occasional Saturday work at local farmers’ markets. Each day is dynamic, with many opportunities to learn.

While incredibly rewarding, this work is demanding. Interns must be in good physical condition and prepared to work in all weather conditions, rain or shine.

Farm tasks include: seeding, weeding, harvesting, compost making, washing plant material, working at farmers’ markets, CSA gathering, apothecary and dry room maintenance, and general grounds keeping.


https://www.banyanbotanicals.com/info/plants/farms-sourcing/internship/
We will be offering two 11-week sessions this year:
May 18th-July 30th
Aug 3rd-Oct 15th

APPRENTICESHIPS AT STONEGATE FARM AND CULTIVATE APOTHECARY

1.BACKGROUND
Stonegate Farm is an 1850s Carpenter Gothic estate farm in New York’s Hudson River Valley, one hour North of New York City. We grow and create beauty and wellness products from our flowers, herbs and fruit. Originally part of a large estate, the National Historic Register farm and Italianate Villa have been meticulously restored, while the surrounding land is in organic cultivation, and also serves as teaching and wellness event venue.

The farm is small, sustainable, bio-intensive and integrated into a residential district; a model of local, small-scale community farming that is central to the owner’s philosophy.

Located in an historic residential neighborhood, and the farm serves as a model of organic and sustainable food, floriculture, and herbal production. The farm is on three acres, with half of that in active use. Besides vegetables, an historic orchard provides heirloom apples, pears, quince, plum, cherry, as well as unusual bramble fruit such as black currant, gooseberry, elderberry and aronia. There is an organic flower and herb farm, as well as a flock of deep brown and blue-egg laying Ameraucana and Cookoo Maran hens.

The farm serves a diverse local community, as well as a national audience through its profiles in magazine articles, podcasts, and books. Cultivate Apothecary at Stonegate Farm has a national retail audience for its skincare and wellness products.

The farm is in production from April through October each season.

2. APPRENTICESHIPS
The farm is in active production for six months out of the year (longer if weather permits), and interns, apprentices, and volunteers (eg. WWOOFERS) come seasonally to learn and experience the theory and practice of small-scale organic agriculture, floriculture, and herbalism.

The farm season begins with seed starting in March in one of three greenhouses on the property, and continues into the season with soil and bed prep, hardening off, planting out, growing, harvesting, processing, infusing and formulating.

The farm owners actively teach organic practices and theory, as well encourage self-defined empirical training.

We are a small farm, but regular work includes seed starting, watering, pruning, fertilizing, weeding, tilling, planting, harvesting, herb drying and product fulfillment.

• Growing: Herbs and botanicals; lettuce, greens; vines & fruiting vegetables; tubers, roots & bulbs; flowers, herbs, and edible blooms, berries, brambles & tree fruit; chickens, eggs & coops.

• Harvest & Processing: Fruit, vegetables & flowers; infused floral oils, infused herbal oils; tinctures, salves & balms, fruit and vegetable drying; flower and herb drying; hydrosols, masks; botanical formulation, packaging and fulfillment.

• Farm Infrastructure and Maintenance: Water systems, fencing and netting, row cover and hoops, edging and weeding, equipment and tool repair, building and design, land clearing, drainage systems, support systems, sales and small ag. business systems, media outreach.

4. EXPECTATIONS:
This is an opportunity for someone keenly interested in local, organic flower and medicinal herb production and small, sustainable farming. The owners will be present and provide training, mentoring and oversight, but the ideal apprentice will:

•  Have at least one season on another farm, or an education/apprenticeship in herbalism, floriculture, or relative study.

•  Know and enjoy the physical demands and protocols of farming.

•  Have a strong physical & mental work ethic.

•  Be curious, detail-oriented, self-directed, ambitious.

• Be comfortable working alone, but also have a positive attitude and a team mentality.

• Have a passionate interest in organics, sustainability, farming, floraculture and herbalism.

5. APPRENTICESHIP DETAILS:

•  The farm week is 5-6 days depending on seasonal demand, with a configuration (determined by weather and demand) of at least 6 hours/day.

• Wage is dependent on experience and skill set. The average wage is $12.50 per hour.

•  Apprentices are supplied with housing on the farm, and food from the farm. A driver’s license is required. No transportation is provided. Guests are permitted with prior consent, as are pets.

Hiring Farm and Apothecary Crew in Orwigsburg, PA

3-4 positions available: Apothecary assistant, field assistant, apprentices

About the farm and positions:

Tooth of the Lion Farm and Apothecary is a 6-acre herb and flower farm located in Schuylkill County. We are a certified naturally grown farm and woman-run business specializing in growing medicinal herbs for our tea and tincture blends as well as cut flowers. We have an herb and flower CSA, and we market our fresh and value-added products at the Bryn Mawr, Rittenhouse and Emmaus farmers markets.

Going into our third season, we are hiring full time positions in our farm and apothecary! We will be a small crew of 4-5 people, working together to grow, process and market our herbal products and flowers. While we each have specific responsibilities that keep the farm business running (see positions below), we are also all working together to create a supportive environment that centers care and respect in our work with each other and in the world.

In all aspects of farm, apothecary and marketing work, I look for someone who:

  • Is enthusiastic about herbal medicine and local cut flowers and is serious about pursuing work in agriculture or herbalism
  • Cares about herbal medicine and agriculture as tools to build more just society
  • Is eager to learn and improve, and gets sincere pleasure from a job well done
  • Enjoys tedious, monotonous and fast paced work; derives joy from picking thousands of beautiful, uniform flowers stems or herbs in a day
  • Who can communicate in a mature, empathetic and understanding way with coworkers
  • Is generally excited to undergo the bizarre business and lifestyle of herb and flower farming here in Orwigsburg 

The farm is located in Orwigsburg, PA, about 1.5 hours from Philly, 45 minutes from the Lehigh Valley and Reading, 15 minutes from Pottsville and Hamburg. Unfortunately there is no public transit and having your own transportation is strongly recommended. Shared, on-site housing is available.

Herbal Technician Needed

Rezilir Health is a growing Integrative medicine practice with an expanding herbal pharmacy in Hollywood, Florida. Our integrative functional approach is designed to treat the whole patient by getting to the root cause of chronic illness and disease. We are currently seeking an Herbal Technician to assist our Doctor of Oriental Medicine with the increasing demand in our Herbal Pharmacy, starting part time and moving to full time within a year. Salary commensurate with experience.

Job Description:

- We are looking for a motivated individual with a positive attitude who would like to expand
their understanding of herbs and how to use them while working in a fast-paced clinical practice primarily dealing with brain health and chronic inflammation through assisting our clinicians (MD, DOM, ARNP, and RD) by compounding formulas for their patients.
- Our clinic currently stocks close to 200 different herbs, and most of our patients receive a custom blend each visit. Depending on patient needs, you would need to compound powders, pills, capsules, balms, salves, lotions, glycerites, tinctures, eye washes, douches, and suppositories. All hires will be given on-the-job training, so knowledge of compounding is not necessary (although it is appreciated).
- In addition to compounding formulas, you will also be responsible for helping to manage the herbal pharmacy. This includes restocking herbs, performing inventory and quality control checks, researching new therapies or treatments, assisting in patient education and continuing education offerings, and maintenance of the pharmacy work space.
- Ours is a practice that works together to ensure that all patient’s needs are met. As such, you may be called on to assist office staff by answering phones, scheduling patients, or performing other related tasks as the needs arises.
Requirements:
- Applicant must have a strong herbal background and must have completed a program in
complimentary/alternative/holistic medicine with a strong emphasis on herbs. This includes the RH (Registered Herbalist) program through the American Herbalists Guild, a BS in Alternative Medicine such as the one offered by Everglades University, or any similar accredited
program. We will also accept applicants currently in an AP/DOM (Acupuncture Physician/Doctor of Oriental Medicine) program, as long as they have completed their Individual Herbs classes (Formulas and Patents classes not necessary).
- Customer service experience, especially in a medical practice, is a plus.
Please forward resumes and inquiries to Jessica Seay at Jessica.Seay@RezilirHealth.com.
