Foraging Level 1: Paw Paw Haul with Taylor Roman
September 11 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm$40.00
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.

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.
