Edible Wild Plants Walk with Russ Cohen

The East Bay region is home to over 90 species of edible wild plants, some of which are more nutritious and/or flavorful than their cultivated counterparts. These include native species like Spicebush and Sassafras, edible weeds like Purslane and Chicory, and edible invasives like Wineberry and Black Locust. Join Russ Cohen, expert forager and author of Wild Plants I Have Known...and Eaten, on an evening ramble to learn about at least two dozen edible plant species, including coastal species like Orach and Sea Rocket. As each species is encountered, Russ will provide identification tips, edible portions, seasons of availability and preparation methods. Russ will also give general guidelines for safe and environmentally-responsible foraging.
