2020 Creative Conversations Hosted by Tattered Cover Book Store
Introduction to foods and medicines found in the backcountry of Colorado. Learn how to identify wild plants and utilize them in some basic recipes! This event is presented by Katrina Blair, author of The Wild Wisdom of Weeds: 13 Essential Plants for Human Survival ($29.95 Chelsea Green Publishing) and founder of the non-profit Turtle Lake Refuge.
Blair will introduce you to some of her favorite foods and medicines found in the backcountry of Colorado. You will learn how to identify the wild plants and utilize them in some basic recipes. When we open the door to learning about the local abundance found right outside in our backyards, we often experience a new type of wealth in terms of personal health and a deeper connection to our home.
