We hosted Maple Boot Camp at Ohio State Mansfield on June 22-24. Carri Jagger, Thomas deHaas, and Kathy Smith pulled this post together for the Buckeye Yard & Garden Online blog.
We cannot hold events of this quality without a lot of help and support. A big thanks to Carri and Kathy, Mike Lynch from CDL, Mike Hogan of OSU Extension, Sayeed Mehmood, Les Ober, Mike Rechlin, Kate Fotos, and Mike Lucero. I hope I am not forgetting anyone. And an especially huge thanks to the Brown family at Bonhomie Acres and Stan Hess for opening up their operations for tours and interfacing with Boot Camp attendees.
Here are a sprinkling of photos to supplement what you’ll see at the linked write-up above.
Maple Bootcamp: Ohio is for woodland owners looking for an annual income from their woodland or current producers looking to sharpen their skills. This multi-day workshop will cover everything from tree identification and tree health through tapping and marketing an end product (syrup, candy etc). There will be tours of a sugarbush that has been in operation for more than 50 years and one that takes advantage of today’s technology. We will also tour the sugarbush that was installed on the Ohio State University Mansfield campus in 2019 and is a hub for maple research. Join us June 22-24 for this exciting event.
Registration is $150 total for the 3-day camp. Sign up here and check out the agenda for more details.
We are thrilled to announce Maple Bootcamp: Ohio, hosted at The Ohio State University-Mansfield campus from June 22-24 this summer. Spots are limited and this opportunity will be shared across our tri-state collaborative (OH, WV, PA) and beyond. You can register here and check out the 2022 Maple Camp Brochure that contains a full agenda.
Don’t forget to register for the Ohio Maple Days meeting scheduled for December 11 in Ashland. We have a limited number of seats, so don’t delay too much in getting in those registrations.
We are also excited to host a syrup grading workshop on Friday, December 10th. Please consider making a couple days of it to participate in both the workshop and the main event on Saturday. Registration for the syrup grading workshop is on the Woodland Stewards website.
