Mercy’s First Maple Tapping

Mercy Upper El students learned how to tap a maple tree this week! Mary Dudley, from the Civic Garden Center, visited to provide the students with a lesson on maple tapping. The students learned about what is going on with the tree, how the weather plays a role, and a bit about the sap to maple syrup process. 

The Farmessori teams are planning to use the syrup in our new baked goods that will be offered as part of the Meteor Munchie program, Maple Mixed Berry Muffins.
