Friendship Botanic Gardens
Annual Maple Sugar Time Demonstration Returns to Friendship Botanic Gardens Sunday, from 11am to 3pm CDT.
Friendship Botanic Gardens will host a free afternoon of winter wilderness discovery at the annual Maple Syrup Time Demonstration, where visitors can walk through old-growth woodland trails before stopping by the maple sugaring station to learn how the early inhabitants of North America produced maple syrup.
Long-serving garden volunteer Jude Rakowski will demonstrate the processes of harvesting and boiling Red Maple sap to make a foodstuff that was crucial to the survival of the early settlers.
Rakowski is a dedicated garden steward who gathers and chops wood the entire year to fuel the fires used to boil the maple sap.
Friendship Botanic Gardens (a volunteer-based, not-for-profit organization) is a community treasure and an oasis of formal gardens and wooded nature trails tucked in an old-growth forest surrounding Trail Creek.
It is located at 2055 East US Highway 12, Michigan City, IN 46360. For more information, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit their Facebook page.
