Fuller Gives Talk at Fiddlehead Festival, Morning Sentinel Reports

David Fuller, an agricultural and non-timber forest products professional with the University of Maine Cooperative Extension and fiddlehead expert, gave a walking talk about the ferns at the Fiddlehead Festival and Local Food Day in Farmington, according to the Morning Sentinel. Fuller, who took a group of 20 attendees on a walk in the woods to show how unchecked foraging could wipe the fern out from a harvesting area, stressed the importance of using sustainable practices when picking fiddleheads. Those practices include harvesting no more than half of the fiddleheads in an area and not going back for a second harvest that year.
