During 2010 I shall be offering apprenticeships to those who wish to develop their knowledge and skills of kitchen herbwifery.
Apprentices will be asked to commit to:-
Choosing between 10-20 herbs to study in greater depth
Attending at least six workshops during the year and taking responsibility for some of their chosen herbs
Keeping a detailed diary of their herbal journey including studies of their chosen herbs, associated studies of human physiology and notes of all herbal products made and taken.
Discussing herbal experiences via an email discussion group
Anyone who is interested in an apprenticeship should contact me before December 14th saying what their best hopes would be for the twelve months of their apprenticeship.
Unfortunately, because the essence of these apprenticeships is local and practical, they can only be offered to people living within the UK who are prepared to travel to the Cotswolds and/or Solihull. It is not possible to offer apprenticeships outside the UK. However, if someone abroad wishes a herbal mentor and can tell me how they think we could work well together, I'm willing to consider it.
