Doing it together.

Creating an urban maple tapping effort isn't that easy. There's a lot to plan for and the more trees that come online the more you need help. From collecting, to storing, boiling, filtering and bottling you need a team to help. These days most of that falls on my family. My kids help out a lot with the collecting, documenting with videos and keeping me company during long boils outdoors in the cold. And my wife helps a lot with the filtering and bottling. Then there are the volunteers who help with collecting. The partners who help with events, research and more boiling. We don't have a big farm with thousands of trees. We have 40 trees so far, distributed over a distance and it takes a lot of cooperation to get it done.
