About Katrina Blair

Katrina Blair at the Durango Farmer's Market

Katrina Blair began studying wild plants in her teens when she camped out alone for a summer with the intention of eating primarily wild foods. She later wrote “The Wild Edible and Medicinal Plants of the San Juan Mountains” for her senior project at Colorado College. In 1997 she completed a MA at John F Kennedy University in Orinda, CA in Holistic Health Education. She founded Turtle Lake Refuge in 1998, a non-profit, whose mission is to celebrate the connection between personal health and wild lands. She is the author of the books “Local Wild Life- Turtle Lake Refuge’s Recipes for Living Deep”, a book that focuses on the uses and recipes of the local wild abundance, and "Wild Wisdom of Weeds: 13 Essential Plants for Human Survival."
