‘Chocolate: From Treasure to Treat’ from the Royal Botanical Gardens

Thursday, December 1, 2016 - 6:00pm - 7:00pm
Join Karin from the Royal Botanical Gardens to learn about cacao and chocolate – from rainforest treasure to luscious treat. Learn about the life cycle of the cacao tree, then journey through history to get the complete story behind the tasty treat that we call chocolate. From the time of the Mayans and Aztecs, to pre-industrial Europe and finally to the present, explore how humans have used and processed these bitter tasting seeds. Finally, discover the role and impact of chocolate on the rainforest ecosystems where it grows.
 
The target audience for this program is adult library patrons. A list of materials for participating libraries to have for patrons will be provided to registrants one week prior to the program.
