We will be kicking off this year’s season with a free community pancake breakfast at St. James the Apostle, 86 Glasgow Street North, on Saturday January 28, 2017. ¬†Join us for some some fresh pancakes and maple syrup from the 2016 boil off!

Urban Sugaring Coordinator




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.
