    Proposal abstract:

    This project plans to provide the local school and community with sustainable, natural, and pure maple syrup. The school is two blocks away from a park which has sugar maple trees available to tap. The plan is to tap them in the early spring and collecting approximately 125 gallons of sap. The sap will then be boiled over a wood fire to reduce it down to a few gallons of syrup.
