This morning, Papa Rich and I talked maple syrup. Between the two of us, we’re putting together the curriculum for the first Driftless Curiosity workshop. I’m working my way through the “North American Maple Syrup Producers Manual” and learning all kinds of fascinating facts about sugaring. Rich is developing lesson plans to cover a multitude of angles on the subject including history, ecology, chemistry, finance, and sociology, weaving together the many ways we interact with the sugar maple. Are you curious?
