February brings us into the season of sap. It is during these cold days that are just starting to tip into spring temperatures that we can ask for barks and saps from trees. Join Taylor Roman in this medicinal tree adventure. We will visit and harvest from 3 of our favorite trees in Maryland on a nice walk around Fox Haven. Little compares to the quality of harvesting forest-fresh. Lets cook down tree barks and craft medicine together as we discuss the practical use of our homemade decoctions.

Taylor Roman 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.

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.
