Call for Herb Garden Interns [Tea Tasting & Tour]
January 28, 2024 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pmFree
Join us for an intern info session to learn how you can get involved in our herbal gardens and orchards at Fox Haven. In this meeting, you’ll get to hear from past interns and learn about our growing practices. We’ll sip tea, tour some of the buildings we use and we’ll walk out to the orchard and gardens weather permitting.
We accept 5 Herbal Garden Interns for a Spring session (March – July) and a Fall session(July – November). Interns work 2 days per week – Wednesday and Friday mornings. Interns receive training in growing, harvesting, processing, and using medicinal herbs through hands-on practice as well as a Herbal CSA share and class once a month. Please look at our Herbal CSA for more information on this offering.
The Internship program is a commitment that you make to our farm and CSA and a commitment that we make to you to offer you the most complete apprenticeship we can to deepen your connection to herbs, hone your organoleptic skills (ability to taste and smell to identify species and potency) and introduce you to the practice of tending herbal crops.
If you are considering interviewing for the internship please contact email@example.com for more complete scheduling and duties information and for an application.
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. To learn more or pay land tax, visit: www.piscatawayindians.com/projects
In the event that inclement weather is predicted ahead of an event, you will receive 48 hours’ notice of cancellation or rescheduling. Otherwise, the event is assumed to be rain or shine. An alternative location may be provided if shelter is needed. We do not offer refunds for postponed events or no-shows. However, if Fox Haven cancels, a full refund will be issued.
If you learn that you have COVID within 5 days after class, we ask that you please notify us so that we can inform participants about possible exposure.
