Foraging Level 1: Paw Paw Haul with Taylor Roman

September 11 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

September sees the ripening of Paw Paw, the blooming of Goldenrod and the fruiting of Autumn Olive. Another foodie adventure awaits as we comb through the Paw Paw trees in search of ripe fruit and harvest enough Autumn Olive for making ketchup.

Taylor 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.

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.
