2023 Maple Tapping Workshop

NOTE: This workshop has been postponed from its original scheduled date to 2/2 due to weather conditions.

Join us in UofL's sustainable Garden Commons next to the Baptist Center to learn about the process of tapping maple trees and making maple syrup!

Our workshop leader, Dave Barker, has been tapping trees and making his own syrup in Louisville for years.

He will give a brief, hands-on workshop on the process and then attendees will get to work with him as we install taps on our own maple trees around campus.

Participants will have the opportunity to sign-up to volunteer to empty buckets as they fill throughout the coming weeks.

Please dress warmly so we can work outside.

This is part of the spring series of Garden Workshops hosted by the Garden Commons, a shared, collectively-managed space, open to participation any time from students, staff, faculty, and community members. Everyone who comes is welcome to share in the harvest!
