    Thanks for sharing this Alicia. I would also be interested in wild editable plants. I saw a book about foraging wild plants at Whole Foods but never got it. There’s probably plenty on Amazon. Anyway, maybe this garden tour includes that but I’m not in LA. I hope you are well. Love you and Christopher and Bear too. Blessing, Blake
