Mayernik Kitchen Herb Farmer Apprenticeship is a 10-month intensive apprenticeship. The program consists of one full Saturday per month, February thru November.
There are two groups for this apprenticeship, one on the 1st Saturday of each month and one on the 3rd Saturday of each month.
Each full day takes place between either North Haledon, NJ (Late Winter/Early Spring) and Wantage, NJ (Spring, Summer & Fall). Each day will span from 9:30 am to 3:30 p.m. (times may vary slightly due to weather and time of year)
The program is hands on that will include planning, seed starting, planting, soil management, medicinal plant education, harvesting and seed saving.
In the early months we will be indoors planning and getting ready for the season to begin, with plant education as well as planning out growing principals.
As the season begins, (May - November) we will be outside working on the farm, planting, building soil, harvesting and so much more.
