Fox Haven Foragers: Botanical Brews

July is the month where we see our first real crop of wild berries – the Wineberry. Making its debut in our area the first week of July, we’ll gather this sweet treat and the most luscious botanicals of the season to try our hand at brewing botanical beverages. Taylor, Fox Haven’s beekeeper, will bring his love of honey to introduce mead and Lacey, Fox Haven’s herbalist, will bring her love of herbs to present wild summer sodas.

Facilitators : Lacey Walker and Taylor Roman

Lacey is an herbalist, farmer and fermenter and serves at Fox Haven as the Garden Manager in charge of all things herbs and programing. Creating the Fresh Herb CSA and the Foraging programs at Fox Haven have been some of the most enriching and inspiring work of her career.

Lacey has been fortunate to train and learn with many talented foragers, herbalists, fermenters and chefs that inform the teaching she does at Fox Haven.

Taylor grew up around Lake Linganore, exploring the surrounding woods and fields.  His formative experiences there fostered in him a lifelong passion for plants and ecology.  He has worked throughout Maryland as a farmer, environmental educator, and landscaper. Currently Taylor works as a teacher and beekeeper for Fox Haven, a horticulturist for Stream-Link Education, and as the assistant naturalist at Fountain Rock Park and Nature Center.  When he is not working he can be found analyzing the plant species composition of the meadow by his house, or staring at bees going in and out of hives.
