2017 Dates Announced for the Medicinal Plant Conservation Certificate Program
Hard Working? Motivated to learn about medicinal plants? Want an opportunity to live and work on United Plant Savers' 360-acre Goldenseal Botanical Sanctuary in Ohio? Participants work 30 hours/week doing a variety of medicinal plant conservation and cultivation projects.
Under the supervision of UpS Goldenseal Botanical Sanctuary Staff, participants will be expected to work 28 - 30 hours a week with medicinal plant conservation and wild-simulated cultivation activities, building and maintaining the medicine trails, doing greenhouse work, maintaining and improving the Sanctuary landscape, assisting in the development of Sanctuary interpretive materials, as well as independent research projects. Much of the work is physically strenuous and participants will be expected to be self-motivated. In addition, participants will learn medicinal plant identification, sustainable wild harvesting principals and practices, and herbal medicine product manufacturing techniques as well attend classes and conferences at the Sanctuary and at neighboring herbal centers. They will also have weekly educational presentations from local herbal experts as well as opportunities to attend related presentations and events such as the Ohio Pawpaw Festival as they occur.
Join us this year from May 1st - June 9th, 2017 for the Spring Session,
or Sept. 5th - Oct. 13th, 2017 for the Fall Session
