By Margit Roos-Collins
The Bay Area is an extraordinary place to experience wild foods, with a diversity of habitats and open spaces positively filled with forageables! This newly updated version is packed with practical advice on foraging along with recipes along with detailed line drawings of over 128 blossoms, berries, nuts, greens and mushrooms by Rose Craig, a former senior artist at Lawrence Hall of Science. Learn about native and naturalized plants, what you can and can’t eat, when and where to find it, how to harvest it sustainably, and simple recipes so you know what to do with it once you've got it. Included is an updated map of the regional parks where various plants can be found, a handy dandy harvest chart, and a new foreword by Iso Rabins of forageSF.
