College Park Fresh Herb CSA at Vital Traditions

May 13 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

Fox Haven is proud to continue offering the region’s first Fresh Herb Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program. CSA Members receive a monthly selection of herbs, study guides with recipes and resources, and a hands-on class to build skills. After a season with us, your pantry will be full of homemade teas, tinctures, oils, salves, and vinegars. For more information on how a CSA Membership works please view the FAQ page: https://foxhavenfarm.org/herb-csa/

TWO MEMBERSHIP TYPES, THREE LOCATIONS

We are pleased to offer three CSA locations for the 2022 year. You are currently looking at the College Park location made possible through our partnership Vital Traditions. You also have the option of joining the Frederick location at Fox Haven (Fox Haven Fresh Herb CSA) or the Baltimore location at Blue Light Junction (Baltimore Fresh Herb CSA).

Once you choose a location, there are also two different types of CSA membership options, each designed to meet different needs.

Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC) Price: $50 OFF

In acknowledgment of the fatal injustices committed upon the black and brown community and the health toll this continues to take on folks, we are offering a discount to our herbal CSA for any BIPOC folk who would like it. This offering is meant to be a step we can take at Fox Haven to be an active agent in your healing and thriving, and an acknowledgment of the structures of privilege that seek to undermine that wellness. To receive $50 off your order, use the discount code CSA50 during checkout.

Buy A Reparation Share for a BIPOC CSA Member: Add a donation to your order (Suggested Donation: $50 or more)

Fox Haven recognizes that our non-profit has played a role in perpetuating systems of racism and colonization through our privilege. We engage in financial and material reparations to communities of color and indigenous peoples and learn from those leading the way to a more just future. We encourage you to join us in this by buying a Reparations Share that can be passed on to any BIPOC person who wishes to receive this form of reparations.

ARE YOU COMPLETELY NEW TO USING HERBS AND WANT TO START SLOW?

Herbal Basics offers a slow-paced introduction to herbs. We’ll cover 10 key herbs and walk you through harvesting and preparing herbs so that you leave with a ready-made product to take home.

Beginning in 2022, Fox Haven will pay $2 from every class participant 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.
