Episode 154: The Gospel According to Turtle Lake

At Turtle Lake Refuge in Durango Colorado, life is a little different: it is symbiotic and ethereal. Katrina Blair lives on a small patch of land surrounded by the San Juan mountains, where she harvests for her one of a kind Wild Foods CSA (Community Supported Abundance). We followed her for a couple days, filming the production of Thistle Root Chai Tea, Marshmallows made from mallow root and the harvesting of weeds, flowers and herbs for the families that pick up their CSA bags once a week. Beyond all that, we were most struck by her philosophy of connectivity to nature, where you can actually talk to the plants. Take a moment to listen and be inspired.

    You drew me in with Katrina’s great work at Turtle Lake.

    The video captures some of the elegance and presence of nature which can be simple and complex all at once. Katrina exemplifies the the value of tuning into it.

    From there I viewed at least 4 or 5 others and really appreciate the journey and experience. Well done!
