Maple Sugaring at Home - Workshop

Saturday, February 23, 2019

This workshop will demonstrate the beloved New England tradition of making maple syrup at home, using the sugar bush on the grounds of the Berkshire Botanical Garden.

Chris Wellens, Director of Education at BBG, will cover all aspects of maple sugaring: identifying suitable trees, the when and how of collecting sap, the boiling down process for the home setting, and preserving the syrup for year-round use.

Participants will walk through the BBG sugarbush, install spiles, consider collection schedules, and boil down the maple sap to syrup.

A tasting will follow.
