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.
