I am studying wild edible plants and would like to find out who has any wild edible plant/flower seeds, bulbs, and roots. I plan on planting around our yard and garden, so I can learn how to prepare the plants for eating, tea, and medicine.

Also, can you recommend any good books (especially for the West), clubs, groups, relating to wild edible plants/flowers, roots, bulbs ....

Thank you.

Not sure if you're asking for the southwest or the northwest - the ecosystems are very different!

I really like "Edible and Useful Plants of Texas and the Southwest" by Delena Tull.

Here's a good seed resource for seeds of native plants of the Southwest:  http://plantsofthesouthwest.com/

Some edible plants native to the southwest:  http://www.highcountrygardens.com/

Some improved varieties of native and introduced edible plants of the southwest:  http://www.nativeseeds.org/

Sorry, I should have mentioned that I'm interested in wild edibles around Central California (the valley and the Sierras).
