Event Details

 

The height of summer offers us many medicinally potent botanicals and is the perfect time to gather and prepare them for the fallow moths and the hectic times of life. Join Katelyn in a search for plants that ease stress, strengthen the immune system and calm the nerves. Together you’ll craft an infused cordial or tincture.
Plants we may see: blackberry, elderberry, motherwort, catnip, monarda, st john’s wort, mugwort

Katelyn is a folk herbalist, gardener, and forager, and the heart & soul behind Hey Thanks! Herbal Company, a small-batch apothecary located in Baltimore, MD. Using primarily home grown, wildcrafted and locally sourced herbs, their goal is to provide products that reconnect people to the medicines of their region and prolong the tradition of grassroots herbalism and local healers.

 

Fermenting Black Walnuts, tincturing medicinal wild weeds, nibbling Autumn Olive, weaving Wild Grape, plucking ripe Paw Paw, frying up edible mushrooms and so much more will be explored this year!

Join us for the third year of Fox Haven Foragers. We’ll visit some of our old favorites like Milkweed, Paw Paw, Goldenrod, Cattail, Jewelweed and Motherwort and we’ll introduce some new species to our forage like Witch Hazel, Japanese Barberry, Sassafras, and Blueberries.

Each Foragers class will include plant ID, foraging and processing the season’s bounty with local guides from diverse backgrounds and skill-sets. Class runs from 11am to 3 pm. For the first 2-3 hours class will be held in the field, gathering plants and learning botany skills. After a quick picnic lunch the last hour is spent processing and cooking or preparing the harvest into a tasty meal or a take-home medicinal.
