There’s unexpected wild food for the picking on the Coastside. The California Report (on KQED) has a story about an "urban food forager" who comes to Half Moon Bay to collect wild greens, these and other plants from other Bay Area places are sold in gourmet retailers in San Francisco and via community supported foraging organizations such as ForageSF. The story acknowledges that foraging is not legal in state parks.
