Medicinal Herb Sanctuary

Herban Ayurveda’s land is located 30 miles east of the Twin Cities.  Our 5 acres have never seen any synthetic chemicals, fertilizers, or pesticides. We tend to the land drawing upon over ten years of experience in beyond organic gardening, biodynamic principals, permaculture, and vedic practices.  We closely monitor each plant and take preventative measures to ensure that we never need to use any harsh insecticides or pesticides. 

Our vision is for the land to be a healing sanctuary.  Safe for endangered plants, pollinators, and humans alike.  A place where just being here soothes the mind and enlivens the senses. 

Herbal Internship

“I learn so much with every trip. Thank you for maintaining a space for growth and healing.”

“I am so grateful to have had the opportunity and can’t wait to be able to come out there again.”
Chris (2018 Intern)

Are you looking to get your hands and feet in the soil?  Want to foster a relationship with the land and plants?  Interested in having great conversations with other plant lovers?  Each season, we host a small group of interns one day a week from May-September. Our day starts at 9am, we take a lunch break at noon, and end around 3pm (or earlier in the heat).

The Internship begins in the late spring prepping the garden beds, sowing seeds, and transplanting seedlings into the ground. As June comes around the focus shifts to weeding and harvesting leaves and flowers. We finish in the fall with harvesting roots and putting the garden beds to sleep for the winter. While we work, we talk about each plant, it’s uses, and how to prepare it for food and medicine. Interns are encouraged to take home part of the harvest to make into medicine.

The internship is free of charge and is volunteer based.  As a thank you for your hard work, we offer 50% off of our AstroEarth program, herbal harvests to take home, and a unique experience you won’t find anywhere else.  Feel free to reach out at with any questions. 

**Each year we are overwhelmed with the interest and enthusiasm for this program and are so grateful for all the amazing humans who want to be part of this land and project.  Apply as early as you are able and expect 3-4 weeks before you hear back from us.  We look forward to hearing from you!
