Join Groundwork Somerville on March 9 at the Somerville Community Growing Center for the annual Somerville Maple Syrup Project Boil Down! Community members of all ages are invited to 22 Vinal Avenue between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. to watch and learn as sap from local maple trees is boiled down into pure maple syrup over a warm fire. Enjoy syrup-tasting, kids’ activities, tapping demonstrations, live music by local band The Pennies, and more! Waffles, syrup, hot cocoa (generously donated by Whole Foods Market and Taza Chocolate) and T-shirts will be on sale. We’ll also have a table for seed order pickup from the Growing Center’s Seed Sale fundraiser.
