Maple Syrup Workshop @ the Library

February 26, 2011 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Check out this cool new way for Somerville youth to engage in the Somerville Maple Syrup Project:

Join us at the Main Branch Library during the four Saturdays in February to learn all about making maple syrup from urban trees in Somerville!   Meet in the Children’s Room at 11am.  Recommended for ages 6-9.  Limited to 15 kids on a first come, first served basis.

February 26: Wait, we can drill more than one tap into each tree?  How do we know how many to do? What does circumference even mean?  How many gallons of sap makes one gallon of syrup?  What does sap taste, smell, feel, and look like? Can we use poetry to describe these sensations? Join us to discover the answers to these questions and many more!

Thank you to the Friends of the Somerville Public Library for supporting this programming.  Workshop series is free and open to the public.
