Call for Herbal Garden Volunteers & Tour
March 20 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pmFree
Join us for a volunteer and intern info session to learn how you can get involved in our herbal gardens and orchards at Fox Haven. We’ll sip tea, tour some of the buildings we use and we’ll walk out to the orchard and gardens weather permitting.
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 Saturday. 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.
