Spring & Fall 2018

Rutland, Ohio

 

Spring 2018: Monday, April 30 - Friday, June 8.

Fall 2018: Tuesday, Sept. 4 -  Friday, Oct. 12.


(Move-in weekend before each.)

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?

Interns will work and take classes for approximately 40 hours per week with the remainder their time left for independent pursuits. Typically this free time would include exploring the 379 acre sanctuary, spending time with the plants, making medicine, and engaging with the surrounding community. Interns will work under the supervision of UpS staff John Stock and Susan Leopold and community teachers Paul Strauss, Chip Carroll, Lonnie Galt-Theis, Tanner Filyaw, Caty Crabb, Rebecca Wood, and more. Participants will engage approximately 40 hours a week doing medicinal plant conservation and cultivation work, building and maintaining trails, maintaining and improving the Sanctuary landscape, assisting in developing signage and interpretive materials, all while immersed in the bio diverse landscape of the UpS Botanical Sanctuary. In addition to identifying and learning about the medicinal plants that live here at the Sanctuary, interns will take classes on medicine making, conservation, non-timber forest products, and more.

Welcome aboard, Bailey!We are thrilled to welcome Bailey Grenert who will serve as United Plant Savers’ first Americorps member through Rural Action’s Ohio Stream Restore Corps program. As a former intern with UpS she fell in love with the Sanctuary, the community it’s nestled in, and the mission to preserve and promote the diversity of native medicinal plants in the region. This passion for plants led her to purchase 10 acres of land neighboring the UpS Botanical Sanctuary in May of 2017. Bailey and her partner Ben plan on building a thriving permaculture homestead and sustainably produce non-timer forest products from their wooded acreage. Bailey grew up in coastal Virginia where she apprenticed on an organic farm before settling permanently in the rolling hills of Southeast Ohio.
