Communal Sap Tapping
Mar 9th @ 9:00 AM - Mar 10th @ 5:00 PM
Pick up your Sap Tapping Kit on: Saturday March 9, 9 AM-4 PM or Sunday March 10, noon-5 PM at MLK Park, 4055 Nicollet!
Combine your efforts (and your sap!) with your neighbors and let’s make maple syrup! Registered participants will pick up a Tree Tapping Kit from the front desk of MLK Park on Saturday March 9 between 9 AM-4 PM or Sunday March 10, noon-5 PM and will agree to tap a tree on their personal property by 3/11/19 Monday evening (note, trees must be larger than 10 inches in diameter). The weather forecast looks perfect for the sap to start running within days.
When the run is done, sap can be dropped off at the park where it will be collected, cooled, and stored until Saturday April 13 when we will have an outdoor communal syrup making party; participants will be able to sign up for a shift of syrup making, and will get to take a jar of the local golden nectar home with them too! A program of the Kingfield Neighborhood Association and MLK Park. As Helen Keller said “Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much.”
Cost $20/ Comes with a kit. Kits includes spline(s), tubing, 5 gallon food grade collection bucket, and how-to instructions. Email email@example.com with your tree’s diameter and species.
Cost $10/ Participant must provide your own kit.
