Imagine eating at your favorite restaurant and being told that the salad on your plate was harvested from the cracks in the sidewalk in West Oakland. Would you eat it? Two professors from UC Berkeley think you should. Their project is called Berkeley Open Source Food. To get these weeds from the ground to your dinner plate, they’re commissioning high end restaurants like Berkeley’s Chez Panisse to use these greens and show the public that they are not only safe to eat, but have lots of nutritional value.
