Backyard Maple Sugaring



Maple syrup doesn’t have to come from Vermont! Jim McDonough, head of the maple sugaring program at Howell Living History Farm, will teach tree identification (with and without leaves), and how to tap, harvest and make your own syrup from trees in your own backyard with low or no cost equipment. His program at Howell began as a 2 month school and Saturday program and has expanded into one that has produced over 80 gallons of syrup this year.

This meeting of the Allentown Garden Club on Thursday, Nov. 13, will begin at 7 pm at the Allentown Methodist Church on Church St. (next to LaPiazza). All are invited to attend. For more information, go to the club website AllentownGardenClub.net.

And the winners are…


Look for their work on next year’s Allentown postcards!!

A bit of our past…

 1706 Nathan Allen settled and built 3 mills on York Road, where it crossed Doctor’s Creek, having purchased 638 acres of East Jersey. Formerly known as Allen’s Town, our colonial country village welcomes you to explore our shops located in historical buildings, wander through our historical cemeteries, and have a bite to eat at one of our well-known restaurants.
