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 third annual Dried Herb CSA will 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 21st, February 19th, March 18th, and April 15th and will be recorded.
The Dried Herb CSA is appropriate for beginners and intermediate herb enthusiasts and includes a monthly digital study guide with recipes and herb profiles, 5 herbal preparations per month and an hour and half long live Zoom class each month to learn how to prepare your herbs and explore concepts together.

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!
