The San Francisco Chronicle: Urban Foraging with Alexis Nikole Nelson
When the coronavirus pandemic first shuttered businesses and restaurants across the country, Alexis Nikole Nelson – otherwise known as @blackforager on Tik Tok and Instagram – posted a video about finding edible plants in one’s own neighborhood.
“I went out in my neighborhood and I was like, ‘Hey, I know you're nervous about going to the grocery store. I am too! Let's meet five plants that are definitely growing in your neighborhood that you can eat,’” Nelson said.
Since then, Nelson has been sharing her love of foraging with thousands of followers, providing tips on identifying wild foods, sharing recipes, and starting conversations about the racial history of foraging laws. Link:
