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.
