Introduction to Maple Sugaring and Community Maple Training
20 February 2016
10:00 AM to noon
Come on over to the VIC and learn about modern methods of designing, installing, and maintaining a sugar bush for bucket, bag, or tubing sap collection. “Backyard tapping” and the VIC’s community-based maple program will also be addressed. The program runs from 10:00 AM to noon. The cost is $20 per person.
This session is part of the VIC's Maple Sugaring Program. The Paul Smith’s College VIC is collaborating with Cornell Maple to expand maple syrup and sugaring opportunities in the region. The goals of the project are to train local producers, promote further growth in the industry, and provide maple syrup production information and education opportunities for the general public.
