Berkeley Open Source Food Project (BOSF)

Web       http://forage.berkeley.edu

We work on food equity, sustainability, nutrition, and gastronomy. We focus on increasing the supply of fresh, affordable, nutritious, drought-resistant, low-carbon-impact greens, especially in urban food deserts. Our work includes mapping the availability and abundance of wild and feral edible plants. We test urban soils and plants for nutrition and toxicity. We promote urban foraging through education and outreach, including teaching plant identification and publishing field guides.
