Howdy fellow permies,
This month we bring you a full on Zone 4 permaculture story about harvesting abundant wild weeds for food & medicine!

Wild Wisdom, Wild Weeds - Katrina Blair <----Click that link & play the podcast streaming on your web browser...

Katrina Blair is the author of The Wild Wisdom of Weeds, a forager’s guide to ultimate food security. Few people have sparked my imagination more about what it means to be resilient than Katrina Blair. In her book she identifies 13 global survival plants – commonly considered weeds in American Culture – that are nutritious, medicinal, improve soil health, & naturally grow in abundance with absolutely no human effort. These plants grow everywhere humans live– from the Arctic Circle to the dry hot desert, & are free & accessible to everyone. The book also has over 100 recipes for how to use these plants for food, medicine, & self care. At Turtle Lake Refuge Café in Durango, Colorado, Katrina & her friends serve up culinary dishes of wild-harvested, fresh, living foods. The proceeds from the café benefit Turtle Lake Refuge’s mission of celebrating the connection between personal health & wild lands.

Katrina Blair & all the folks that make Turtle Lake Refuge possible.

We've gotten feedback from several folks that people wanted to see our podcasts appear on YouTube. So, we decided to update one of our podcasts with visuals to make the content more relatable & enjoyable to watch.

Ever since we recorded our interview with Katrina Blair, author of The Wild Wisdom of Weeds, we have longed to turn the footage into a video so that we can visually show people the beauty of these amazing plants that we are talking about. Plants that some refer to as "weeds." So, over the course of the past month, we did just that & added visuals to this inspiring interview! Every time an edible & medicinal plant is mentioned, we show you a gorgeous image of the special plant ally that is likely growing steps away from where you are right now. We hope you enjoy learning about the wild wisdom of weeds with Katrina Blair from Durango, Colorado.

Thanks for watching
One day a chicken crossed a road and nobody questioned the motives. Thank you tiny ad.
