The Natick Community Organic Farm is gearing up for maple syrup season and gives a heads up that buckets to collect sap from maple sugar trees will soon begin showing up in Wellesley, Natick, Dover and Sherborn. The maple sugaring season is very weather dependent, but typically runs from February through March. Contact the farm about volunteer opportunities.
The farm, located off of Rte. 16 in Natick near the Memorial Elementary School, offers educational tours of its sugar shack and will celebrate its annual Maple Magic Day, which includes a pancake breakfast, on March 5.
