    Overview

    Creating your own wiggly worm habitat for kids is one of the best ways to teach youngsters about simple, at-home sustainability. In this class, we’ll learn about composting and the earthworm’s very important role in the natural degrading process. We’ll also discuss what makes healthy soil as we get our hands dirty, building a natural worm home.

    For kids ages 5-7, parents welcome.



    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.
