Get to know Faith Starr of Living Green With Faith in our last speaker spotlight for the 2011 Seven Springs Fair! 

What are you going to speak about at the MOTHER EARTH NEWS FAIR? 

Faith StarrI will be speaking at four different workshops. Three of the workshops are about wild edibles and the fourth one is about do it yourself health. One is a slide show of wild edible plants with information on how to recognize and use them. The second workshop is a weed walk on the Seven Springs grounds so people can actually see the live plants in their habitat. I’ve found a great spot near the conference center that has an abundance of wild edibles. The third workshop will show how to use the wild weeds by making tinctures, oils and syrups to preserve their benefits to last all winter. I love the excitement that is generated when people realize that the weeds in their backyards have great nutritious and medicinal values – that’s in addition to being delicious!

What are you most looking forward to sharing with FAIR attendees? 

How to recognize and use those wild plants that grow everywhere. I love to see their reaction when they realize what a wealth of free food is growing right outside their door. The feedback from attendees at last years weed workshops was outstanding – so come join us!
