Philadelphia Orchard Project (POP) event featuring Oak Lane Maple
Time & Location
About the Event
Get tix on POP site here. Yes, it's possible to make maple syrup in Philly, no travel to Vermont required for this sweet plant-based treat! Jethro Heiko is a community organizer and founder of Oak Lane Maple. He is as passionate about community as he is about maple trees and syrup. Oak Lane Maple tapped 40 trees in North Philadelphia in the 2021 season which is just wrapping up.
At the event, you will learn about maple trees and tree tapping in our region, required equipment for the tapping process and syrup preparation, how Jethro got started tapping last year, and how you can get involved. We will visit a few of the maple trees in The Woodlands and talk about tree identification of maples and other edible trees commonly found around the city, and on the grounds of the Woodlands.
Please note: Face masks are required. We will not be tasting or sampling any syrup at this event.
