Foragers Level 1: Seed Saving & Propagation with Lacey & Taylor

November 13 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

$40.00
November brings our year of foraging to a close and just as we started we’ll end by contemplating how we, as humans, can give to the Earth. What have we practiced and learned this year that gives instead of takes? We’ll learn some skills to help divide plants that can be propagated by division and we’ll winnow and clean seeds gathered from the year to work on spreading them and stewarding more abundance. We’ll finish this year with a potluck and skill swap, bringing forth all the knowledge we’ve gained together in the year.

Lacey Walker is an educator whose passion for herbs led to becoming Fox Haven’s herb farmer, herbalist, forager, and plant educator. While teaching English to non-native speakers in DC, Lacey began facilitating peer-to-peer learning, a style of group learning. As Director of the Learning Center Farm, she created the Fresh Herbal CSA in 2017 and established Fox Haven’s Herbal Internship Program in 2018. A lifelong learner, Lacey studies with noted experts and has completed two years of apprenticeship at the Wild Ginger Herbal Center (formerly Centro Ashe), as well as two study trips to Costa Rica and training on the body, with Tammi Sweet of Heartstone Herbal School. In 2017, she completed coursework on fermentation with Sandor Katz in Tennessee, and in 2019, completed an apprenticeship with Susquehanna Apothecary, where she honed medicine making skills.

Taylor Roman grew up in Frederick, where his years exploring the woodlands around Lake Linganore established a lifelong passion for understanding nature and its complex systems. He studied environmental education and ecology in college, while working with community organizations in Baltimore to create and sustain gardens and green spaces in the city. He has worked throughout Maryland as a farmer, gardener, master naturalist, and environmental educator for the last 8 years, gaining diverse skills, from mechanical repair to beekeeping. Taylor’s passion for nature education is centered around experiential learning and he is passionate about Fox Haven as a place where people can connect to the natural world through direct, intimate experiences.
