In 2017 I’ll lead four apprenticeship programs in the gardens at Pendle Hill, in Wallingford, in the suburbs of Philadelphia. Each program will be four days; alternate Thursdays starting in March and continuing through October.

  • Session 2: May 11, May 25, June 8, & June 22
  • Session 3: July 13, July 27, August 10, & August 24

Apprentices will have the opportunity to work in a large, highly functional market-style garden that provides produce to the Pendle Hill kitchens as well as herbs for Susquehanna Apothecary. Apprentices will participate in routine maintenance of the gardens, greenhouse, & hoop-house. They will learn about different sustainable agricultural styles, including synergistic & bio-intensive. They will learn about growing a wide variety of foods & medicinal herbs. This is an excellent opportunity for beginners with a serious interest, for experienced gardeners who want to learn more about growing plants professionally, or for professionals interested in learning small-scale intensive production techniques.

Work gloves & tools provided. Lunch is included for each work day.
