The Oakland Museum of California

Foraging has provided sustenance to communities of all kinds since the earliest days of California, but the practice has captured new interest as an alternative to the industrial food system.

This event begins with a bicycle tour of fruit gleaning spots in Temescal, guided by Forage Oakland. Upon return to the Museum, there will be presentations and discussion with California foragers and a screening of the film The Gleaners and I (Agnès Varda, 2000). The event includes a take-away guide by artist Kacie Erin Smith, and, quite possibly, tastes of foraged foodstuffs.
