“Edible Native Plants of Marin County”
Guest Speaker: Susan Karasoff, Yerba Buena Chapter CNPS

7:30 p.m. – Online Zoom Presentation

Vaccinium ovatum2 Ann ElliottMarin county native plants include many delicious edible native fruits, vegetables, herbs and nuts that are adapted to our local soils and weather. We’ll discuss what to plant so that you can grow a year around native edible plant buffet, including shallow rooted plants that thrive in containers. Edible plant recommendations are based on the ethnobotany of which plants are eaten by the Coast Miwok, growing the plants and taste testing the plants.

Susan Karasoff gardens in San Francisco’s clay soil. Susan is a member of the California Native Plant Society – Yerba Buena (San Francisco) chapter. She brings an “only the easiest plants survive” approach to gardening. Susan grows a buffet of colorful native edible and pollinator plants, specifically gardening to feed caterpillars, bees, hummingbirds and people.
