Workshop–Making Maple Syrup: Tapping and Collecting Sap

Join Groundwork Somerville and NOFA Mass on Saturday, Feb. 2nd from 1-3 pm for a special wintertime workshop on urban maple syrup-making! Learn about the history of maple sugaring, tree identification, modern tapping and sap collecting technology, and the effect of climate change on maple trees.  You’ll also taste-test syrup and participate in a hands-on demo of sugaring techniques by tapping local trees, as part of the 10th annual Somerville Maple Syrup Project! The workshop will start in the Rabb Room inside Lincoln Filene Hall at Tufts University, and end with an outdoor tapping demonstration, so make sure to wear warm clothes and boots.

Tickets are on sale now at the NOFA Mass website; $25 for NOFA members and $30 for non-members.
