Maple sugar camp March 23-24 in NYM [UPDATED]Published 6:17am Monday, March 18, 2013 Updated 8:18am Monday, March 18, 2013
Learn to make maple sugar, a prized natural sweetener, and have fun doing it on Saturday and Sunday, March 23 and 24 at the Bob Sonnenberg farm just north of New York Mills.
Ed Ranson of Sebeka will teach this very easy and old process to anyone who wants to learn.
Come to the Sonnenberg Farm at 9 a.m. on Saturday to learn how to tap the trees and collect sap and on Sunday to boil the sap into amber sweetness.
Cost for the two sessions is $10 per person; no charge to students.
Ed has been making syrup on his farm for many years, and you will enjoy his easy teaching style and substantial scientific knowledge about trees and about making maple syrup.
This class is one of the sessions of the Continental Divide Folk School, a teaching project of the New York Mills Regional Cultural Center.

The entire schedule of spring courses is available on-line (www.kulcher.org) or can be picked up at the Center.
