Thinking of adding value-added pure maple products to your operation? Looking to improve your current candy and cream skills? Merle Maple confections expert Eileen Downs will demonstrate the processes used to make award-winning candy and cream, from start to finish. Join this North American Maple Syrup Council webinar on Monday, December 12th at 7 PM. Register here.
The second opportunity is offered twice. Once at 7 PM on December 14th and again on December 17th at noon. In these sessions, the lead researcher (Geoff Lewis from the University of Michigan) will describe this maple syrup life cycle inventory project and go over the data they’re looking to collect from producers and processors this coming spring. These data will also be used to build an online calculator for any producer to estimate their own greenhouse gas emissions and receive suggested strategies to reduce these emissions. There will be plenty of time to answer questions about the project and participate. Registration information is here.
