Event Details

Tap for Sap workshop

Note: As of 10am March 29th, This event is cancelled. See for some excellent tapping advice, and Pakenham Feed & Seed for supplies. 


Ticket price includes workshop + two tree-tapping spiles!


Learn to harness the power of the spring in your own backyard.

In this mini-workshop the why, the how, and the when of tapping trees for sap in the urban environment will be explored. With your help, we will tap a few trees, look at the equipment required, and hear tips about syrup production at home. 

Our Nepean host is no stranger to trees - with a backyard complete with 1/3 of an acre of Sugar Maples, and several over 1 foot in diameter, we'll have a few to choose from for our demonstration!

We will provide each attendee with two spiles (spiles are like tree faucets, see bottom picture on the right) to take home, and the knowledge of how to install them in your neighbourhood.

Join us to learn this simple yet delicious skill you can take back to your backyard. The address of the event and a few more details will be sent to those who register sucessfully. 


See you then!
