FRAMINGHAM – Did you ever want to learn how maple syrup is made?  Open Spirit is hosting two opportunities to learn how and to help make some syrup.

On Sunday, March 10, from 10 a.m. to noon, attendees can register for a free program hosted by Open Spirit in Saxonville, at a private residential home.

All ages are welcome to come and learn how to make maple syrup at a private home in Framingham.

“We’ll be heating maple sap from the Open Spirit Maple trees and boiling it down into syrup. While we make it, you can share your favorite tree story, help feed the fire, roast marshmallows ,and enjoy a taste of fresh maple syrup if you stay long enough,” said Rabbi Katy Allen.

There is a second program on Monday, March 11 from 3:30 to 7 p.m. co sponsored by Open Spirit and the Appalachian Mountain Club RX.

Come to the playground across from Edwards Hall, Open Spirit’s “sugar bush,” and learn how to make maple syrup from maple sap.  All ages are welcome to help as we boil down the sap, share tree stories, roast marshmallow and enjoy a slice of pizza for dinner. You are welcome to drop in for 15 minutes or stay the whole afternoon,” said the Rabbi.

If you stay for pizza cost is $5, if not the cost is free.

Space is limited for both events, but if you would like to participate registration is required.
