“In a world focused on serious issues such as climate change and the redesign of energy, food, and human shelter systems… Mia and Kevin’s work shines as a functional and joyful solution to the seemingly massive scale of the human footprint. eating the plants that are available, and growing wild in your neighborhood and region is more than a symbolic gesture towards honoring ecology… it returns you to the ecological system as a functioning member, like any other bird, bug, and mammal.”
—Rebecca Burgess, educator and author of Harvesting Color-How to Find Plants and Make Natural Dyes

    Hello there!

    I recently received a copy of your book and I absolutely love it! Great selection and variety of plants and description of who to use them. I just ordered two more copies for other family members who live in the Bay Area as Christmas gifts. It’s very helpful to have clear photos of the plants to better identify them. Great work!

    Thanks!

    Hello Kevin,
    Is this available in any San Francisco book-stores?
    Thanks!

    It is available at Scarlet Sage in San Francisco, possibly still copies at the Green Arcade as well as Far West Fungi in the Ferry Plaza Building. Within this upcoming year, we hope to have it many more stores in the Bay Area.

    Hi Kevin,
    I hit Rancho San Antonio this weekend looking for bay nuts…there was none! Is the season over already? Couldn’t find any on the ground or on the trees, although there were small flower buds on some of them. Any thoughts?
