Maple-Sugar-TastingChilly weather can slow down the sap but Garden Hosts at the International Friendship Gardens have been gathering enough to keep the kettles boiling. Visitors can visit the Gardens this March 2nd to enjoy this sweet pleasure of Spring. This is a free event! Visitors can walk the Maple Trail and watch as gardeners tend the kettles and tell the story of maple sugar. It takes almost 50 gallons of sap to make 1 gallon of maple syrup!!

Enjoy the Taste of Maple Sugar
March 2nd, 10 am to 3 pm

At the cabin, visitors can have a sweet maple cookie treat and a cup of tea sweetened with – maple syrup! Garden hosts have to chop wood, hang and lug buckets and tend the fires. It’s a wonderful way to greet spring!

The International Friendship Gardens are located at 2055 U.S. Highway 12 on the eastern edge of Michigan City. Call 219-878-9885 for more information and updates if the weather is ‘bad’.
