Where the Wild Things Grow

Date and Time: Saturday, April 22 @ 10:00 a.m.

Leaders: Philip B. Stark and Tom Carlson

Start: Codornices Park entrance (1201 Euclid Avenue)

Our favorite foragers from Berkeley Open Source Food are back by popular demand!

Again this year, Philip and Tom will open our eyes to the edible greens

at our feet on a three-mile, hilly loop, from Codornices Park to Grizzly Peak Blvd. and

back. More than 100 species of wild and feral safe-to- eat plants grow in the Berkeley

area, and our guides will teach us the difference. They expect to spot at least 15 types

of tasty leaves, including mustard, mint, mugwort, and nodding onion. Please note, they

discourage picking or sampling; this walk is for information only. However,

several Berkeley restaurants will be serving wild greens the week of 4/16 to 4/22.
