What It Is

Participants tap maple trees and turn it into syrup for their community

Why We Do It

Much like the syrup it produces, the process of Maple Sugaring itself makes things stick together. The routine of extracting sap, boiling it down, and bottling it up is as extensive as it is elaborate, which gives participants a chance to team up over and over again. And by the time the season ends, participants have the chance to display their hard-won expertise, not through a test that they take but by what they give to their community: the syrup itself, of course, as well as an irresistible reason to celebrate together.
