Hi Lynn, are you on the PUFN listserve? If you are, you should think about sending this message out to them. I bet the professor would get a lot of responses! 

Take care,

Subject: [Wild-Foodies-of-Philly] Foraging study requests participants
Date: Wed, 13 Mar[masked]:00:01 -0400

 
From Professor Patrick Hurley, Ursinus College:
 
Do you gather wild plants or mushrooms in Southeastern Pennsylvania?
 
We'd like to talk with you.
 
The Purpose
People living in southeastern Pennsylvania have long gathered
and still do gather wild plants and fungi for a variety of reasons,
including the economic, cultural, subsistence, and other benefits they
provide.
 
But we recognize that the foraging/gathering of wild plants and mushrooms is
a practice not often discussed in public venues. Thus, we are interested in
learning about the diversity of plant and mushroom species that are
gathered, the ways these materials are used (as crafts, tools, food,
medicine, etc.), and the motivations for gathering. In this way, we seek to
discover and document this practice and its importance to people living in
Bucks, Montgomery, Delaware, and Chester counties. 
 
Who We are and How this Information will be used?
This study is being conducted by researchers from Ursinus College.
Results from this research will be published in a final report online,
presented at academic conferences, and submitted for academic publication.
