  • Thursday at 7 p.m. Northern Gardening

    When the nights are cold but the sun warms the trees during the day, maple sap starts flowing and many people in Cook County head to their sugar bushes to harvest maple sap and make it into maple syrup and sugar. Join us on the February edition of Northern Gardening to hear stories from local maple syrup makers – from Grand Portage to Finland, small-scale to commercial. It will be an extra sweet show!
