Useful and Edible Plants of California (2)

DISCLAIMER: A website is insufficient to convey the knowledge a person needs to safely and responsibly use wild plants. Before eating or using any plant, seek hands-on field training with a qualified professional in the proper identification and use of wild plants.
Gather only what you need or use. You should leave more than enough for the plant to easily reproduce and grow.
Also know that gathering in State and National Parks and wildlife preserves may be detrimental and/or illegal. Be sure to get permission from the landowner of private property before gathering wild plants.
