Fox Haven Foragers: Level 1 (Session 1)[SOLD OUT]

February 12, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Join us for the seventh year of Fox Haven Foragers. In this Level 1 series, we’ll visit some common favorites like milkweed, goldenrod, cattail and elderberry. We’ll also introduce some seasonal species to our forage like witch hazel, Paw Paw, sumac, and aronia.

Natural dyeing with fresh florals, hunting for edible mushrooms, plucking ripe Paw Paw, cooking up cattail, propagating and stewarding wild species and so much more will be explored this year! Each Foragers class will include plant ID, foraging, and processing the season’s bounty with local guides from diverse backgrounds and skill-sets.

Class runs from 9 am to 12 pm on the second Saturday of each month from February through November. The first 2 hours of class will be held in the field, gathering plants and learning botany skills. The last hour is spent processing and preparing the harvest into a tasty meal or a take-home medicinal.

Whole Series Cost: $400.00

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. To learn more or pay land tax, visit:

Foragers 1 class has been a bridge for me between my garden and the wild places. I’m also slowly adding new trees I recognize around my neighborhood and on hikes. I’ve made friends with a local Black Walnut and am getting to know it throughout the seasons. I’ve appreciated how each of our amazing instructors has not only rich knowledge, but also a deep relationship with the world around us. Their big-picture perspective of our ecosystems and our place within the larger world has inspired me to grow in the ways I practice reciprocity. I’m already planning for future classes at Fox Haven while also exploring and growing on my own. ~Charis Hans-Storms
