Grow & Learn: Adventures in Chocolate
February 23, 2013 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Grow and Learn is a monthly education series that features topics relating to local horticulture, botany, floriculture, history and culture!
This month’s topic is chocolate and the rich history of the Theobroma cacao plant. Join us on Saturday morning to learn about the role the cacao plant and its fruit played in Mesoamerican society; how the Spanish brought chocolate to Europe; and how technological innovation and advertising took chocolate from a decadent luxury to a mass-produced indulgence found in almost any grocer or gas station.
Participants will get an opportunity to taste various styles and percentages of cocoa and even get to create their own sweet treat. Reservations necessary, so please call  or email [firstname.lastname@example.org] to save your place for a sweet and savory Saturday morning!
