David Fuller’s work focuses on helping agricultural and home food producers to harvest better crops, with an emphasis on organic production in Allium crops (garlic and onions) in addition to general vegetable and fruit crops. Dave’s non-timber forest products work involves educating small woodlot owners as well as industrial forest landowners in realizing the value of their property beyond boards and pulp with an emphasis on income streams from sustainable harvests. Dave’s research projects include: hardneck garlic production; storage onion and shallot variety trials; wild leek distribution; and ostrich fern fiddleheads: sustainable harvest and cook times.
