Join us for a day of rejuvenation & self-care at the serene Fox Haven Farm, designed for BIPOC individuals during Juneteenth weekend.

Fox Haven Farm joins forces with over 25 BIPOC teachers, practitioners, and business owners to host BIPOC Wellness Day, a celebration for Black, Indigenous, and People of Color to commune, collaborate, and revitalize in the embrace of nature on June 15, 2024 (Juneteenth weekend!).

Join us for a day of rejuvenation! Immerse yourself in nature, link up with your community, and enjoy activities that create a supportive space to connect to your joy.

The event will offer activities focused on wellness, emphasizing various forms of personal and community care. BIPOC instructors will lead sessions that encourage you to explore and express yourself. Planned activities include Nature Journaling, Breathwork, Herb Walks, Tea Tastings, African Drumming, free-flow dancing, nature-based children’s crafts, and more!

Our partner, Soul Street, is organizing a BIPOC Market of service providers that will offer consultations, mini-sessions, and demonstrations
