      • Berkeley Goes Wild for Weed Eating Week

        "If you can't beat 'em, eat 'em!" That was UC Berkeley professor and ethnobotanist Tom Carlson's advice to a crowd of 100 who gathered for a walk in the Berkeley hills to learn which weeds on the street—and their backyards—could be part of their next meal. The event on April 4, 2015 kicked off Wild Food Week, an effort to educate the public about how what are often considered to be common nuisances could actually be assets. The walk was organized by the Berkeley PATH Wanderers Association, and gourmet meals featuring the weeds were dished up in fancy restaurants such as Chez Panisse, Cesar, Mission Heirloom and The Perennial throughout the rest of the week. Advocates say that eating weeds could help to prevent food waste and supply nutrition during times of drought, as well as be a potential solution to insufficient access to fiber and phytonutrients in food deserts. For others, it just may be an easy and efficient way to grab some greens without leaving home. The weeklong event was organized by Berkeley Open Source Food, a project headed up by UC Berkeley faculty Tom Carlson, Philip Stark, Kristen Rasmussen and Eric L. Berlow. In addition to public education, the group is conducting research on the availability and quality of weeds and the surrounding soil in local food deserts (specifically targeting neighborhoods of Oakland, Berkeley and Richmond). The group also put together a foragers' guide to common edible weeds for anyone looking to gather salad fixings on the way home from work—without missing a beat. I produced this video for California Magazine (http://alumni.berkeley.edu/california-magazine). For more information about Berkeley Open Source Food, visit http://forage.berkeley.edu.

              Remember: you can find our indiegogo campaign page at www.plantedhouston.com. Thank you for your support! Food As Medicine Event a Success! This past Monday Ali Miller, RD, of Naturally Nourished and Chef Monica Pope hosted a food as medicine dinner for us at Sparrow Bar + Cookshop. There were "foodicinal" cocktails paired with delicious vegetarian small bites to feed the crowd, while Ali gave us some insights on how our foods effect our bodies and why local produce is important. We were proud to host Houston City Councilman Stephen Costello, who spoke about his efforts to fight food deserts through grocery store incentives. We're glad to have him on board with our project, and look forward to working more with him in the future! Dr. Jasmine Opusunju of CanDO Houston spoke about their work with ameliorating Houston's obesity problem, and specifically about how Planted: Houston's produce will be used in their Healthy Corner Store Initiative to make healthy foods accessible in food deserts. David Leftwich of Sugar and Rice Magazine led the panel discussion with Dany, Ali, and Monica about why local foods matter, and what Houston is doing to increase the supply locally. With such a successful event with so many great partners from different fields of work, we are feeling the energy! We are at 40% of our goal, and we know that with your help and the amazing community that is Houston, we will not only reach our goal, but surpass it! We need your help. By spreading the word on social media, telling your friends and family to contribute, or asking if your employer can contribute. Also coming out to our traveling speakeasies! (Next one will be next Monday at Onion Creek from 4-7pm). With your help, we can transform this city!
