Garden Tour & Tea Tasting with Ashley Hoffman

September 4 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

$12.00
Let’s Talk Mental Health! In this tour, we will talk about herbs that soothe our nerves and lift our spirits.

Tour the Garden and tea tasting with Fox Haven staff and learn about the plants that are ripe for harvest. From the ferny plant that made Absinthe to the root that made the first marshmallow to the flower that stops bleeding – we’ll tour the stories and senses that fill our garden. Participants are welcome to pack a picnic to enjoy on the land before or after class.

About the Speaker

Ashley Hoffman was born and raised in Frederick County and brings her passion for this land to her work at Fox Haven. She is an herbalist who advocates for accessibility in healthcare and herbalism. Through her classes and garden tours, she hopes to inspire students and visitors of Fox Haven to create positive relationships with their own health, the earth and one another. Ashley is also an artist focused in photography and mixed media. Within her personal work, she creates a dialogue for important social and environmental issues. At Fox Haven, you’ll see her creativity in the posters and promotional materials for classes and events.

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.
