Wild Plant Retreat  June 28 - 30, 2024

The Wild Plant Retreat is based out of a cabin in the La Plata Mountains. Join Katrina Blair for a weekend of harvesting and preparing the wild plants into edible recipes and medicines.

The intention is to spend time in nature for an educational and nourishing retreat. Sleeping options for Friday and Saturday nights include beds in the hut or camping. 

The Wild Plant Retreat starts on Friday at 11:00 am at the Turtle Cafe. We will begin with an introductory class and partake in the wild food lunch served at the cafe. After lunch, we will take a wild permaculture plant tour of the Turtle Lake Community Farm.  Harvesting some of our foods for the retreat, we will then head to the mountains to the Silver Star Hut for dinner.

Saturday morning after movement practice and breakfast, we will pack our lunches and head out for a wild plant field trip. Evening will be a collaboratively made wild foods dinner, music and sharing time by the fire. After breakfast on Sunday morning, we will conclude our retreat and return home. 

Retreat starts at 11:00am on Friday and finishes at 11:00am on Sunday 

Retreat Includes: Food, Lodging, Education and Connection
