    Overview

    Join Fox Haven’s Herb Garden Manager, Lacey Walker, and delve into the complexity of what it means for something to be edible or toxic – and the much bigger in-between! We’ll draw on Lacey’s herb knowledge to identify plant families and begin to parse out plants that are friends and plants that are foes. Then, we’ll meet some wild nutritive plants that will be used to create a nourishing herbal vinegar.

    Lacey is an educator whose passion for herbs led to becoming Fox Haven’s herb farmer, herbalist, forager, and plant educator. While teaching English to non-native speakers in DC, Lacey began facilitating peer to peer learning, a style of group learning. As Director of the Learning Center Farm, she created the Fresh Herbal CSA in 2017 and established Fox Haven’s Herbal Internship Program in 2018. A lifelong learner, Lacey studies with noted experts and has completed two years of apprenticeship at the Wild Ginger Herbal Center (formerly Centro Ashe), as well as two study trips to Costa Rica and training on the body, with Tammi Sweet of Heartstone Herbal School. In 2017, she completed coursework on fermentation with Sandor Katz in Tennessee, and in 2019, completed an apprenticeship with Susquehanna Apothecary, where she honed medicine making skills.
