Metropolis, a Philadelphia regional news site, recently profiled David Siller in a piece called “The Urban Forager.”
Before you start thinking this is some creepy trash-digger, you’re wrong. Siller actually forages edible plants out of the forest (in super-secret locations) that he then sells to farmers markets, pubs, and high-end restaurants.
Enough chefs at spots like Russet and Pumpkin buy Siller’s finds — everything from cattails and chives to edible flowers and gargantuan mushrooms — that he makes most of his income off of local foraged plants.
