FAW Maple Syrup Mentorship Wraps Up a Great First Year!

Maple Syrup Production Mentorship Mentors and ParticipantsParticipants in the FAW Maple Syrup Mentorship Program spent their last day of the Program on a field trip, touring three well-respected maple shacks. The trip wrapped up a very successful first year of this unique mentorship.

Over the course of the season, the participants learned practical skills in maple bush management, syrup production, and business planning. Mark, one of the inaugural participants in the program, said: "I have gained invaluable experience and highly recommend this program to all novices".

Many thanks to Marc and Diane Curle for doing an outstanding job of engaging participants and sharing their knowledge. Farms at Work has begun planning the second year of the program and we're looking forward to another great season!
