Call for Herbal Garden Volunteers & Tour
February 5, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pmFree
Every season we accept volunteers to come to work in our herbal gardens and orchards and help us brew teas for events, set up before classes, or participate in garden work. Interested volunteers receive weekly emails during the growing season with open hours and tasks they can choose to volunteer for. Volunteers are not required to respond to these emails, they are free to volunteer as their schedule allows but we do request an in-person meeting for orientation before volunteering, which this event can fulfill.
We accept 5 Herbal Garden Interns for a Spring session (March – July) and a Fall session(July – November). Interns work 2-3 days per week – Wednesday and Friday mornings and the occasional Saturdays and Sundays. Interns receive training in growing, harvesting, processing, and using herbs through hands-on practice as well as an Herbal CSA share. 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 interested in becoming an intern please email Lacey at firstname.lastname@example.org. to receive the 2022 Intern Info document that explains all the dates, intern perks and expectations. A zoom interview will then be scheduled with you before we meet for the land tour.
*The February 5th Call for Volunteers will be a chance to meet fellow interns and receive a tour of the land among other volunteers.
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.

Otherwise, the event is presumed to take place rain or shine. An alternative venue may be arranged if shelter is required. Please note that refunds are not provided for postponed events or no-shows. However, if Fox Haven cancels, a full refund will be issued.
