Around the nation there is a growing interest in eating local food. Two weeks ago Fox Haven held a meeting with local farmers and others interested in growing more, selling more and eating more local food. We released not only data from a local grower survey, but also heard from experts in the field about the local movement around the nation. See Will Gray’s presentation here to learn more.
Please join us at Fox Haven on March 18th for the survey response summary, to learn of ongoing efforts and to discuss ways we can grow more, sell more and eat more local food.

Poetry Reading (FREE of charge)
“Even adjectives are untamed in Lisa Couturier’s exquisite poems,” says author and poet Chris Cokinos. “Things beckon and die. Beloved creatures and parts of the human heart come back to the world of human and animal kinship. Though there is, here, a ‘sadness for animals’–deer, horse, vulture, seal, child, parent–and though she wonders if ‘absence asks/if it has all been enough”–we discover that by having a body, we have the wild, and these poems are vivid sinews. This is wise, heartbreaking and beautiful work.”
Writer, Sven Birkerts, says about Every Root a Branch, “Elizabeth Rees’s poetic imagination, imagistic and psychologically honed, projects back into history, as far back as the myths of origin–and these poems, weighted with mattering, give a picture of the narrative behind our daily projections: longings, sorrows, retributions and redemptions. We feel a poet doing the poet’s hard work, processing what is.”

Five Stars. The Restorative Winter Retreat far exceeded my expectations. Foxhaven is truly a special place and the perfect setting for a day of relaxation. I left feeling completely restored and rejuvenated. I learned so much and felt a real connection with both the staff and the other guests. I will definitely be attending again in the future!
