Mission Statement

Inspired by the wisdom of the natural world, Fox Haven is a gathering place, grounded in nature and contemplative practice, dedicated to nurturing deep and creative conversations among people, restoring human connection with the natural world, and engaging with the living, sacred earth. It provides a calm atmosphere to slow down, hear each other and learn from nature. Fox Haven is a place for people seeking innovative and systemic solutions to the complex social and environmental problems threatening our planet by slowing down, listening, observing and learning from nature. We are cultivating a sense of wonder and joy in discovering the secrets and mysteries of the natural world.

Description

For over 30 years, Fox Haven’s forest and farmland have been a training ground for innovative, sustainable farming practices to restore the health of the land, to protect the water quality of Catoctin Creek, and to provide sanctuary and habitat for wildlife.

Fox Haven Organic Farm is restoring and regenerating the health of the land, innovating sustainable agricultural practices that are environmentally sound and can be replicated on other farms. By demonstrating ways of conserving and enhancing the biological diversity of the land, creating wildlife habitat, and providing organic alternatives to chemically intensive agriculture, we are showing that sustainable farming practices are not only better for the land and human health, but also a viable alternative for area farmers.

The Fox Haven Learning Center is a gathering place grounded in nature and contemplative practice, dedicated to nurturing deep and creative conversations among people, restoring human connections with one another and with the natural world, and showcasing practical ways that individuals can make a difference. By offering a wide variety of speakers, on going programs, activities for kids, family gatherings and celebrations, the Learning Center offers the surrounding community a safe haven for gatherings of all kinds.
