Piscataquis Observer previews talk by Fuller

The Piscataquis Observer previewed a talk by David Fuller, an agriculture and non-timber forest products professional with the University of Maine Cooperative Extension. The talk, titled “Forest foods: what’s in the woods besides timber and firewood?,” will cover edible forest products including sap, ramps, spruce gum and others, and will include a tasting of some products. Hosted by Dexter Dover Area Towns in Transition, an organization working to help local communities become more independent, the talk will take place at the Abbott Memorial Library in Dexter from 10 a.m.—noon July 14.
