Channel 5 (WABI) and the Bangor Daily News carried reports on proper identification, harvesting and preparation of fiddleheads. The Bangor Daily News interviewed Lauren St. Germaine, a University of Maine Cooperative Extension home horticulture coordinator, and Dave Fuller, agriculture and non-timber forest products professional at UMaine Extension. Channel 5 last week interviewed Fuller and Jason Bolton, a UMaine Extension food safety specialist, about fiddleheads. Fuller also was interviewed for a story in the weekend Sun Journal about the first annual Fiddlehead Festival field trip in Farmington.
