Meet your Teachers
Natalie Love is a lover of learning and living things! After completing an internship at Fox Haven Learning Center in 2020, she is joyfully sharing her enthusiasm by stepping into the role of supportive facilitator and teacher. In her upcoming classes, Natalie will share her love and lessons of the natural world of herbalism, plant dyeing, fiber art, toolmaking, and tea preparation.
Mardelle Poffenberger is Fox Haven’s Business Manager. She loves history and is known for her living history activities in Frederick and Washington Counties. Mardelle subscribes to the sustainable, use-everything-throw-nothing-away lifestyle which existed for thousands of years, and she works to incorporate this into her daily routines. Professionally, Mardelle is a bookkeeper, administrator-trained in business management, and is part owner of Bravura Arts & Framing, an art gallery and custom picture framing shop in downtown Frederick. Mardelle’s work at Fox Haven allows her to combine much of what she loves in life.
In 2023, Fox Haven will continue to 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.
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.
