Maple syrup, the real deal, straight from trees in your back yard? Yep, it's true! You don't have to head to Vermont or buy lots of fancy equipment to get your own supply of delicious maple syrup! Join us Sunday March 3rd at 1pm for a demo of how to tap a tree for this sweet sap. It's called "sugaring," is easy, and doesn't harm the tree. Guy Neal, primitive skills expert and homesteader from Frederick County, Maryland will show us how. And in a few weeks, after we've collected enough sap, we will meet again to boil it off, leaving delicious maple syrup.
Demo is free but donations to our instructor are appreciated. Demo will be outside so please dress accordingly.
