About the Speaker
Laith Nichols: Fox Haven Orchardist, Beekeeper, & Teacher
Laith comes to Fox Haven with five years of farming, gardening and land maintenance experience. Their background includes greenhouse management, vegetable production, poultry and small ruminant/equine care and beekeeping. They’ve worked for a variety of growing operations; experience includes Gotham Greens–leading producer of hydroponic-grown leafy greens, TALMAR–horticultural therapy center and vocational training farm, and KarmaFarm–a small-scale farm growing specialty produce for CSA and local restaurants. Laith is passionate about ag-based education as a vehicle for fostering food sovereignty and promoting ecological stewardship and is looking forward to helping folks who visit Fox Haven establish meaningful connections to the natural world.
Continuing in 2023, Fox Haven will pay $2 from every ticket sale to the Piscataway Land Trust as a LandBack tax for the land Fox Haven inhabits. Land taxes to indigenous nations function similarly to paying rent or a home mortgage. Payments such as a mortgage provide access to living space, whereas LandBack taxes recognize our access to stolen Indigenous land.
The Piscataway Land Trust is a long-term Indigenous-led effort led by the 501(c)(3) Cedarville Band of Piscataway Indians Inc. to restore and rematriate ancestral land and sovereignty in the Chesapeake region to Piscataway and other Chesapeake Indigenous people.

About LandBack Tax
From 2022 onward, Fox Haven will donate $2 from each event ticket to the Kikeokan Foundation to pay LandBack tax, acknowledging our access to stolen Indigenous land. The Kikeokan Foundation is an Indigenous-led initiative working to restore ancestral land and sovereignty to the Piscataway and other Indigenous communities of the Chesapeake.
