Maple Syrup Project ramping up!

Thanks for your interest in the Somerville Maple Syrup Project, here are some updates and reminders that take us through the end of the season:

  • **Last chance to order a Limited Edition T-Shirt!**  Please email me your size by Tuesday (tomorrow) at 8pm to get the 2011 edition! They cost $12, and all proceeds will support the Maple Syrup Project.  The t-shirts are in standard unisex sizes from children's small through adult extra large and are maroon with goldenrod yellow ink. They feature art from several artists (of all ages) illustrating their favorite parts of the Somerville sugaring experience.  
  • Thanks to the over 40 supporters who attended the tapping event: the gorgeous weather rewarded us, causing sap to flow out the freshly drilled holes before we even hung the buckets! Thanks to the Tisch College Civic Engagement Fund for helping support sap collection and boil down activities.
  • Save the Date: The Boil Down Festival will be on March 5th from 10am to 2pm at the Somerville Community Growing Center.  Please find the poster attached - feel free to post it and help spread the word!
  • Join us on Facebook!  Attend the event and invite your friends
  • Have 7-9 year olds?  Check out the Library Workshops that are happening each Saturday in February at the Library.  Thanks to the Friends of the Somerville Public Library for their support of this event
