Winter still has a lot of activity and learning!

What are you interested in learning and doing this winter and spring?

The U Pick page shows you we are sustainable and incorporating permaculture principles as we learn. After the outdoor growing season we put our harvest into  health-conscious dried herb products including culinary arrangements and blends, wellness teas and blends, and aromatic bath and sachet products. We do research in January, February starts the growing season again indoors. All the while, we’re doing winter markets.

Here’s how to apply – write us an email at lori@bigskyherbs.com answering these questions: You can copy and paste these in your email.

1) Are you a student or non student?

This year, we’ll be holding our Volunteer Learning Days mostly Sundays, still learning and GROWING… sign up below

What’s an Outdoor Volunteer Learning Day?     

Hours are 10 am – 5 pm with a lunch provided.
When you arrive, you’ll be given a plant key and assigned a task to work with a partner or a team.

Most jobs will be specific to rows (there are 20) so you can get familiar with categories of herbs personally.

Lunch hour at 1 pm, we’ll be eating and talking herbs! After eating, you can browse the crafting room and buy items for 25% off, sign up for an internship and receive your appreciation gift certificate of a free bag of herbs during the U Pick Sundays this year. (Or by appointment – July – September 15).

The afternoon will be more of the same, perhaps switching teams or partners. I’m always looking for student or non-student interns to work in the garden, U pick tours, Saturday Markets, and Tue-Thur mornings maintaining the garden, harvesting and processing herbs. When you sign up for an internship, we’ll log your hours for your university credits and other benefits after 12 hours of volunteering. *Saturdays are dependent on market or fairs participation.
