Join us on Tuesday, May 23 at 6:30pm for a slide-illustrated talk about maple sugaring. Explore the mysteries and mystique of maple sugaring and meet the dedicated, sometimes quirky folks who make it. Find out how this unique and ancient northeastern North American product was discovered and the high tech techniques it takes to produce today. Are sugarmakers the canary in the coal mine for climate change? Why do some people think maple syrup is the next miracle food? Learn how you can make and enjoy your own syrup.
As a former sugarmaker and board member of the Connecticut Maple Syrup Producers Association, David Leff will give guests an insider’s view of the craft. Books will be available for sale and signing.
