Scattered around the city right now are a dozen or so trees, lovingly tapped to collect their bountiful sap. We’d Tap That has been Not Far From the Tree’s pilot project in urban maple syrup production! But as the weather heats up, the sap stops flowing….which means it’s time to make maple syrup!
Let us bring the sugar bush to you, and join us for an afternoon of syrup tasting, fun, and learning this Sunday March 14th! We’ll be serving up tiny tastes of urban maple syrup in Dufferin Grove Park, graciously donated as sap by homeowners across the city. We’ll have activities and games for all ages, and information galore about the wonderful world of maple syrup. Come on out and chat with some of our amazing volunteers about their experiences, and what they’ve learned through the process.
There will also be live music (weather dependent) courtesy of Makita Hack and the Log Rollers, and a warm fire. The Zamboni Cafe will also be selling yummy maple-syrup-themed fare (pancakes, beans, and sausages!) for you to completely enjoy this experience. And, if you haven’t already ordered yours online, our T-shirts will be for sale.
Note: ** This event will go on, rain or shine!
