Nutritious, healthy plants surround us--in our neighborhoods, where we work, and where we call home.  For Claremont's Earth Day Celebration on April 23, expert forager Douglas Kent is leading a foraging tour of Claremont, hosted by Sustainable Claremont as part of its continuing effort to make Claremont a more sustainable community.   

Doug started eating weeds in 1979 and has never looked back.  Since 2008, he has been teaching the techniques of foraging and wildcrafting at Cal Poly Pomona.   In this episode - somewhat of a preview to the workshop - Doug highlights several plants - weeds to some - that grow just about everywhere, and are seldom recognized as the healthy foods they really are.   Plants people walk past every day, and usually try to destroy or prevent, are actually better for eating than much of what is found in the produce section of your grocery store.   In Doug's workshop/tour, he will showcase ways to protect yourself, the most common foraged foods, and delicious treats that are often missed in the San Gabriel Valley.   

Along with six other books, he is the author of Foraging Southern California: 118 Nutritious, Tasty Edibles to Harvest in Bulk,”   Doug is one of the nation's leading authorities on this topic, and received both his masters degrees from Cal Poly Pomona; one in Regenerative Studies and the other in Landscape Architecture.   He is the principal of Douglas Kent & Associates in Orange, and is an adjunct professor at the John Lyle Center for Regenerative Studies at Cal Poly Pomona.
