Feb 23: Maple Sugaring Prep in Morning & Open Farmhouse in Afternoon

February 19, 2013

We’re gearing up for a busy Saturday and hope you’ll be able to join us for one of the two free events going on!

Maple Sugaring Prep PartyWe are reviving the maple sugaring tradition at Brook Farm this February and March!  Join us Saturday, February 23 at 9am at the Brook Farm Farmhouse

Come help us set the stage for a successful maple sugaring season: Tap the trees, hang pales, and gather firewood for the coming weeks’ sap boiling and for the farmhouse woodstove. We’ll also work on inventorying our farm supplies and tidying up our farm spaces.

Arrive at 9am (or later if that’s the only time you can make it) ready to work outside. We’ll intersperse our work with a few worksongs, a farm snack, followed by a potluck lunch at 12 noon. Please bring a dish to share!  Rain, snow, or shine.

Feel free to RSVP for the maple sugaring prep party on our facebook event page (but it’s not required!)
