All Things HONEY & “The Book of Delights” by Ross Gay
September 15, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Join us at the farm as we partner with Brunswick and the Maryland Public Libraries for a delightful experience as part of the One Maryland, One Book series! We will explore the world of honey bees, the history and uses of honey, and taste several different types of honey in celebration of what brings us joy.
This year’s One Maryland One Book choice is “The Book of Delights” . It is a collection of genre-defying lyric essays beautifully written by Ross Gay. They are recordings of delights the author wrote over one year. They serve as a reminder to us all to take time to find more delights and hope in our lives.
This event is limited to 15 guests. Feel free to bring your book and stay afterwards to chat about your favorite essay.

About LandBack Tax
Beginning in 2022, 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.
