Allentown Garden Club of New Jersey

Nov 13, 2014   -  Monthly Meeting:    Backyard Maple-Sugaring

No, maple syrup does not have to come from Vermont.  In this presentation you will learn tree identification (with or without leaves) about low or no cost equipment and how to tap, harvest and make your own maple syrup from trees growing in your own (or a friend's) backyard.

Jim McDonough heads the maple sugaring program at Howell Living History Farm.  What began as a two-month program for school groups and Saturday program for the public expanded into a fundraiser for their Gift Shop.  This year over 80 gallons of syrup was produced in the Howell Farm Sugar Shack.
