Maple Syrup in Somerville!

The Maple Syrup Project has begun!

Each winter for the past eight years, sap has been collected in this New England city (most densely-populated in New England, as a matter of fact) just around the time that it dips below freezing at night and above freezing during the daytime.

For the past two years, GWS has been in lead of the charge to collect sap and boil it down for extremely local syrup! In collaboration with the Friends of the Community Growing Center, Tufts University and the Somerville Public Schools, we will teach science lessons, boil down over 80 gallons of sap to syrup, and engage hundreds of community residents in this wonderful event!

Join us from March-12-14 at the Community Growing Center (22 Vinal Ave, Somerville) to see firsthand what it's all about!
