Meet your Teacher: Eziaku Ogbonna, PharmD, MBA, PMP, BCPS

Clinical Pharmacist Specialist & Herbalist Eziaku Ogbonna is a Board-Certified Clinical Pharmacist Specialist, Project Management Professional and former Herbal intern at Fox Haven Farm. She received her Doctor of Pharmacy degree from the University of Maryland School of Pharmacy after majoring in Chemistry as an undergraduate student. She currently works as a clinical pharmacist at a local hospital.

Growing up in west Africa, Eziaku would observe her elders using herbs to help treat ailments. This birthed her passion for a holistic approach to health and wellness.

Affectionally known as Dr. OG, or “Big Farma”, Eziaku also runs a small skin+body care business called Ayoni Wellness, where she formulates natural health & wellness products with ingredients that are prescribed by nature and backed by science.

Eziaku’s mission is to bridge the gap between traditional and western medicine by empowering people with the knowledge and tools that they need to become informed consumers.

Continuing in 2023, 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.

About LandBack Tax
From 2022 onward, Fox Haven will donate $2 from each event ticket to the Kikeokan Foundation to pay LandBack tax, acknowledging our access to stolen Indigenous land. The Kikeokan Foundation is an Indigenous-led initiative working to restore ancestral land and sovereignty to the Piscataway and other Indigenous communities of the Chesapeake.
