At Turtle Lake Refuge in Durango, Colorado, life is a little different. Katrina Blair lives on a small patch of land surrounded by the San Juan Mountains, where she harvests ingredients 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. Her philosophy of connectivity to nature leads her to actually talk to the plants. Take a moment to listen and be inspired.

- [Katrina] You have to experience it yourself. You have to just go and be quiet. And sit with plants and walk and taste. And it's like the plants become the teachers and open the doorway for you. When we ingest wild plants, we get that intelligence that they are. They are brilliant. You know they have this wild strain. They lived their entire life outside. They know what's happening underneath the soil. There's so much communication going on and when we go out and pick that and put it into our bodies and eat it, we become part land, that plant and that intelligence goes into our cellular matrix and starts to actually resonate and vibrate our being. So we start to become smarter and more intuitive, better caretakers of the planet because we are eating our very home. And so it teaches us to become eco stewards also. Maybe that's our number one occupation as a human race is to care for this incredible home that we all live on.
