Somerville Maple Syrup Festival This Weekend!

maple-syrup-bottlesGovernor Baker declared this March “Massachusetts Maple Month” to recognize our state’s maple producers. Most of our state’s 300 maple producers are located west of Worcester, but it turns out we don’t have to go that far to enjoy local syrup tasting – join Groundwork Somerville tomorrow, March 12th for Somerville‚Äôs annual Maple Syrup Boil Down Festival. All members of the community are invited to the Somerville Community Growing Center at 22 Vinal Avenue between 10am and 2pm to watch and learn as sap from local sugar maple trees is boiled down into pure maple syrup over a warm fire. In addition to syrup-tasting, waffles, and hot drinks, this family friendly festival features activities for kids, demonstrations, and much more!

The 12-year old Somerville Maple Syrup Project coordinated by Groundwork Somerville in partnership with the Somerville Community Growing Center, Somerville Public Schools, Tufts University, and each dedicated Maple Syrup Project volunteer.
