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!

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
In the event that inclement weather is predicted ahead of an event, you will receive 48 hours’ notice of cancellation or rescheduling. Otherwise, the event is assumed to be rain or shine. 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.
