Maple Sugaring

March is the time of the flowing sap. Join us as we go through the process of tapping trees, walk our winding sap routes, gathering the sap, and the boiling process. A great way to get outside and in touch with this seasonal New England tradition. We'll even get to taste some sap and fresh made syrup! *Note* - if the sap is not running on this date, we will practice making one match fires with materials off of the landscape.

    So glad to hear that everyone had such a great time learning about an activity that is steeped in rich New England Culture.

    Will you offer this class again this season?

    March 10, 2014

    • Michael James P.

      Okay, you talked us in to it. But we'll have to offer two different ones so that folks who already went can also have a choice. We'll host another Maple Sap and Syrup on Saturday, March 29th from 9am to 12pm and on Sunday we'll host an Awareness, Tracking and Native Eyes Approach to Reading the Landscape Workshop.

    Thank you, Mike, Nate, and Colby, for a fun and educational morning among the trees! On the way home, Denise and I picked up three used sugaring buckets at Knight's Farm Supply, and in a few hours, we have already collected almost 3 cups of sap from Red Maple trees just outside the house.

    One question--were the buckets we used stainless steel? The ones sold at Knight's are aluminum, and the only other types I can find online are galvanized steel or plastic.

      Awesome! The stainless steel buckets are the top of the line and really expensive. Most of ours are the aluminum or galvanized. Thanks for coming by. Mike and Nate are planning the next few events.

      Thanks for explaining!

    I had a blast! It was fun introducing folks to the first big event of the year regarding the bounty of nature. It was also fun introducing them to the possibilities of community centered around "Outdoor Pursuits"!

      Thank you for the wonderful morning!! I really appreciated your ability to convey your knowledge, passion and respect for nature in an inviting way that allowed each of us to take what worked for us without feeling pushed or proselytized in any way. I will look forward to the next meetup at the school.

    Can't wait! Any other place I need to register besides this site?

  • Michael James P.

    The sap is flowing! We also have a rocket stove we built for the occasion to heat up our evaporator. We'll see you tomorrow!

    Sorry to cancel, but my MS is misbehaving, and I am totally out of energy this weekend. Have fun!

    March 8, 2014

  • Michael James P.

    We're boiling some down today from last weekend. We'll have some above freezing temps between now and the weekend, so we should be in good standing.

    Is it too soon to tell if the sap will be flowing?
