Event Description

One of RBG’s Courses & Workshops

The Mayans and Aztecs valued chocolate as a connection to their gods and as currency. Today it is enjoyed as a treat all over the world. Join Karin to discover the ecology of cacao tree, and how it was traditionally grown, harvested, and processed. We’ll also explore the chocolate that is enjoyed today and the discovery of this treat from seed to refinement. Materials: While participating in the program, why not have a few samples of your favourite chocolate!
