Hop on the TransportedSF biodiesel bus as we head for the East Bay Hills to channel our inner foodie with a day of foraging for wild edibles in the sun!
Iso Rabins will be our guide as we forage local and sustainable cuisine in the East Bay hills. He'll teach us how to identify wild edibles all around you, from wild fennel to mallow. Many of the plants we see everyday can be consumed on the spot (although better after a quick rinse). We'll be taking a collecting walk, then making a dinner that includes some of what we foraged.
Iso Rabins is the founder of http://www.foragesf.com , a CSF (Community Supoprted Forage) with the mission to connect Bay Area dwellers with the wild food that is all around them. From wild mushrooms to acorn flour, there is a wealth of edible forage just outside our doors that few people know about, and still fewer ever consume. The goal is to push people out of the supermarket, to get them trying new foods harvested sustainably and fairly by their neighbors.
This event is co-sponsored by Down to a Science, a monthly science discussion night in SF. http://www.sciencecafesf.com
Of course, this being a TransportedSF bus ride, there will be plenty of time to relax and enjoy the day so bring frisbees, blankets and anything else you need to have a pleasant Sunday in the sun.
Also: wear proper clothing as we will get a little dirty gathering cuisine. Check-in starts at 11:30AM and our bus leaves at Noon. Please arrive on time. This event is BYO. All minors must be accompanied by an adult.
