Building Your Herbal Relationship CSA

Membership Share Type: Monthly Pick-up & Class at Blue Light Junction

When: 9:30-11:30 am third Saturdays, May – October

Meet and Greet and Intro to Tincturing April 29th

End of Season Harvest Celebration November 4th

Price: $310 per share ($14 will be paid to the Kikeokan Foundation)

Registration Dates: Open until May 13th

Description: This CSA option is appropriate for beginning herbalists and community-based learners. Over the course of the year, we’ll meet 24 new herbs and get to know them through taste, touch, and smell. Through a monthly, hour-and-a-half-long exploration, we’ll come to know these herbs and their uses as food and herbal health support. You’ll learn basic skills like how to clean, prepare, dry, and store your herbs at home. In class, we’ll experiment with different applications covering vinegar infusions, fermentation, salves and infused oils, teas, herbal dips and marinades, tinctures, bitters, oxymel, and ciders. The herbs we will meet in this CSA are nutritive, gentle, and safe. Each month will include a digital newsletter with profiles for each herb as well as resources, recipes, and study suggestions. Each class will be accompanied by a “cheat sheet” full of ideas for how to prioritize your processing and herbal play once you get home with your share. When possible, we will visit wild herbs (like Jewelweed and Cleavers) in their habitat.

Building Your Herbal Apothecary 

Membership Share Type: Monthly Pick-up & Class at Blue Light Junction

When: 9:30 -11:30 am third Saturday, May – October

Meet & Greet and Intro to Tincturing April 29th

End of Season Harvest Celebration November 4th.

Price: $275 per share ($14 will be paid to the Kikeokan Foundation)

Registration Dates: Open until May 13th

Description: This share is appropriate for past Relationship CSA members, independent learners or those with an established herbal relationship. Once a month Apothecary CSA members will be asked to select their preferences of herbal bundles based on seasonal choices to choose 2 out of the 5 bundles they will receive. CSA members will receive a monthly newsletter profiling the 3 herbs chosen by Fox Haven with suggested books and resources and helpful tips for storing and using herbs, but will be self-guided in their applications and will not have a class designed for them.  Members with an interest in more collaboration are welcome to sit in on the class and can process herbs and socialize during the active portion of the Relationship class. This is an opportunity to begin processing herbs, chat with other herbalists about preparations, sip tea and enjoy the company of fellow herb-enthusiasts.

Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC) Price: $50 OFF

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.

Buy A Reparation Share for a BIPOC CSA Member: Add a donation to your order

(Suggested Donation: $50 or more)

At Fox Haven, we have spent the past few years at Fox Haven intentionally listening, learning, and reflecting on the roles that our non-profit has played in the systems that perpetuate racism and colonization. Our decision to engage in reparations through offering free and discounted membership options for the BIPOC communities and individuals that we serve continues to deepen our understanding and knowledge base, our relationships, sense of humility, and builds trust. If you would like to support this cause, please add the Sponsor a BIPOC Participant offering to your cart.
