February 5th Update
We are now working with Transition KW and will be selling kits! Kits will be available at Together We’re Bitter (300 Mill St #1, Kitchener) craft brewery in Kitchener between 3 and 5 pm, on Saturday February 10th.

Thanks to everyone who came out to our pancake breakfast as St. James.




Have you ever wanted to make your own maple syrup but were unsure where to start or how to do it? The Urban Sugaring Project is a new effort that will allow tree owners in the City of Guelph to work together to create maple syrup.

Tree owners will rent a kit (a bucket, tree tap, and instructions) for $10 and return the collected sap to a central location. The sap will be collected and boiled down by volunteers to syrup and redistributed back to the participants.
