Winter Dried Herb CSA [SOLD OUT]
January 15, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am
Our Fresh Herb CSA may be at the end of its season, but the herbal fun doesn’t have to stop now! Fox Haven’s second annual Dried Herb CSA to keep you well-nourished during the winter months.
This CSA runs from January through April with online classes every third Saturday from 9 am-10:30 am on Zoom. Classes are on January 15th, February 19th, March 19th, and April 16th and will be recorded.
A one-time pick-up for all 4 months is available at Fox Haven in Frederick, and at partner locations in Baltimore and College Park. If an in-person pickup isn’t possible, we can also ship the share anywhere in the country (shipping not included).
The Dried Herb CSA is appropriate for budding herbalists and community-based learners. Over the course of the season, you’ll experience over 18 dried herbs that can be used as teas, broths, salts, salves, spice blends and more. Each month you will receive a bundle of 5 dried herbs or herbal blends. The CSA will be accompanied by an hour and a half-long Zoom class where you’ll learn how to prepare your herbs, along with recipes and ideas to try at home.
In class you’ll have the opportunity to explore:
-Herbal Tea & Hot Cocoa Blends-Cordials, Syrups and Tinctures
-Herbal Salts, Seasoning & Broth
-DIY Salves and Soaks
-Baking with Herbs (Herbal Spice Cookies and Savory Spice Blends)
Hibiscus Rose Cordial blend, Ashwagandha and Oat Hot Cocoa, Fig and Spicebush with Ginger and Turmeric Cookie Spice, Nettle Garlic Bread Broth and Sleepy Tea are just a few of the goodies in this year’s Winter CSA.

Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC) Price: $200
*Please note, growing and processing dried herbs involves the labor of a long harvest season, drying, and storing throughout the year. Our cost reflects the value of the herbs in addition to the educational offerings we provide.
*About BIPOC Pricing: In acknowledgment of the fatal injustices committed upon the black and brown community and the health toll this continues to take on folks, we are offering a discount to our herbal CSA for any BIPOC folk who would like it. This offering is meant to be a step we can take at Fox Haven to be an active agent in your healing and thriving, and an acknowledgment of the structures of privilege that seek to undermine that wellness.
*The Winter CSA is limited to 30 participants. If you’re interested in joining, sign up as soon as you can!
· All class ticket sales are considered a donation to Fox Haven and help us to fulfill our mission.

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.

An alternative location may be provided if shelter is needed. We do not offer refunds for postponed events or no-shows. However, if Fox Haven cancels, a full refund will be issued.
