Maple Syrup Community Boil Down!
Did you know that every year, Groundwork Somerville makes maple syrup in a wood-fired boiler (made by Somerville High School students), and you can come watch? Join us for our annual maple syrup boil down festival!
We will be boiling all the sap collected this year from sugar maples at Tufts and serving up pancakes from Cuisine en Locale. There will be live music, games, and Groundwork Somerville gear for sale! Rain date: Saturday, March 17th. The Maple Boil Down is the culminating public event for our annual Maple Syrup Project, in which we tap trees at Tufts, teach a series of lessons to Somerville 2nd graders with volunteer teachers from the community, and host field trips at the Somerville Growing Center. Come by and bring friends, family, and other maple syrup enthusiasts! Share this event and help spread the word!
