Internship & Apprenticeship Opportunities

Innisfree is a nature oasis where we showcase botanical medicine, food plants and Shinrin Yoku (forest bathing) to help people reconnect with nature. For over 10 years, we have provided education about native and medicinal plants, along with conservation strategies through an array of classes, workshops and retreats.

We also offer special opportunities for students studying herbal medicine through our apprenticeship and internship programs.

Those interested in taking an apprenticeship have the opportunity to learn from a professional medical herbalist over a structured eight week (65 hours) course during the summer.  Learn more at

We run our internship programs in the spring and fall, with each intake being a two-week period. Interns work 25 hours a week in exchange for full board and lodging. Learn more at


*PLEASE NOTE – we are accepting applications for 2021, but all programs, including apprenticeships and internships are tentative at this point. We are following all COVID19 related advice and will be waiting until restrictions are reduced and we can continue to offer our excellent programming courses.
