Garden Workshop & Tea Tasting: Let’s Talk Mental Health!
September 20, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Enjoy a tour of Fox Haven’s herb garden and learn about the herbs that soothe our nerves and lift our spirits! Specifically Lemon balm, St. Johns Wort, Passionflower, Motherwort, Yarrow, and Hops. This experience is perfect for anyone with an interest in practical gardening or herbalism.
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.

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. To learn more or pay land tax, visit: www.piscatawayindians.com/projects
