A few months ago a group of eco-villagers headed into the Angeles forest to learn a bit about edible native plants from wilderness survivalist Christopher Nyerges. What follows are some photos from that trip . . .

Among the findings were bay, “indian coffee”, a mushroom, and agave (which may be cut into strong fibers and abraded, with some added water, to the point of creating a foamy soap.) Does anyone recall the name of the small green plant photographed here? We also found some buckwheat and other plants I don’t remember and didn’t photograph. Mostly I was just excited about the feast of previously collected wild foods that we had after the walk.
