You can forage for your supper here
Urban foraging is alive and well ‘round these parts, even if you don’t read about it that much (because, uh, it’s illegal). No, you’re not going to stumble upon precious fiddleheads, but if you go to Fresh Pond, for example, you’ll find more than 50 edible wild plants. And if you start investigating the whole local foraging scene, you’ll discover that lamb’s quarters and nettles can be had pretty much everywhere you look.
