Plant Your Own Edible Native Fruits & Vegetables

Edible Native Fruits & Vegetables of SF

July 25, Saturday, 1pm Speaker: Susan Karasoff
Zoom reservations required

Presented in conjunction with San Francisco Public Library. San Francisco is home to many delicious edible native fruits, vegetables, herbs and nuts. Local California native plants evolved to adapt to our local soils and climate. We’ll discuss what to plant in specific areas of San Francisco so that you can grow your own native edible plant buffet, including shallow rooted plants that thrive in pots. Edible plant recommendations are based on ethnobotany publications of edible Ohlone and Coast Miwok plants, growing the plants and taste testing the plants.


  1. This is great, I know hazelnut is native to bay area, need to look for edible vegetables as well.


    • I don’t encourage gathering in the wild except maybe mushrooms and berries as it may impact the plant reproducing. This workshop focus’s on growing edible natives in your garden
