It's Maple Sugaring time at the Sweetser Farm in Saco.  Here troubled teens are given a second chance to improve their academics and learn life skills.  Math and reading skills are enhanced as they move through the process of turning maple sap into syrup.  But the students are also learning how to interact with each other in a positive way.  They learn conflict resolution and how to get along better with their peers.  The students themselves find satisfaction in creating such a valuable product.  The syrup is bottled on site and sold at fund raisers or to family and friends.
