We are excited to share our updated Apprenticeship Program for the 2024 season!
Since 2013, we have had the pleasure of building relationships with some amazing apprentices, tailoring the experience to their interests as our homestead grew and developed over the years.
This year we have created a new structure for our Apprenticeship Program:
From March-October, this 8-month apprenticeship is fully hands-on, meeting one evening a week throughout the entire season.
We will be learning together in the gardens, the greenhouse, the homestead kitchen, and on the land itself.
We will cover:
- Growing Medicinal Herbs
- Regenerative Land Stewardship
- Holistic Homestead Design
- Organic Gardening Techniques
- Seed Starting, Saving & Storage
- Herb Harvesting, Drying & Storage
- Hands-on Medicine Making
- Building Soil Health & Compost Magic
- Building with Cob (Clay from the Land)
- Cultivating Connection with Nature
…and much more!
One Evening a Week
*Includes Tuition for Monthly New Moon Herb Sessions – Hands-on Medicine Making ($300 Value)*
“To apprentice with Heidi is to be on the receiving end of a soulfulness that transmits her love of life lived close to the land and to the elements, and to making a better day for her three girls and all the others who benefit from time on Bluebird Hill. Our communication was easy, our schedules flexible, and projects were in steady supply, so we set about crafting a summer plan where the learning was in the doing.”
~ Margie, Apprentice in 2017
“My apprenticeship at Bluebird Hill was a wonderful experience. From working in the gardens to nature connection with kids, from digging a trench to envisioning the future, I was constantly learning. The land is definitely holding some magic there. Working with Heidi and learning from her was such a gift!”
~ Hallie, Apprentice in 2018
