ChocoSoil Workshop
Friday, March 14: 6:30 to 8:30 PM

Join ChocoSol’s Lead ChocoSoil Animator, Byron Koss, for a two hour interactive workshop exploring our community-based urban agriculture research project that integrates soil making into the day-to-day operations at ChocoSol.

Learn about the closed-loop cradle-to-cradle waste use approach we are applying to our production systems, and how we up-cycle cacao shells, cacao char, paper towels, and food scraps into our worm composters to create healthy urban soil ecosystems and to grow roof-top spices and herbs for use in our chocolate.

Attendees will participate in demonstrations on our roasting, winnowing, biochar, and grow light operations, as well as hands-on activities such as sifting cacao shells, mixing ChocoSoil blends, seed starting, and setting up worm composters.

You will also have the opportunity to indulge in eating and drinking chocolate samples!

About ChocoSol 
ChocoSol chocolate is also an open invitation to all, as our cacao is sourced via horizontal trade from Indigenous farmers in Southern Mexico and is organically grown. Our chocolate is made without dairy, gluten, soy, and nuts, and is also vegan. And it’s made right in Toronto at our new location (1131 St. Clair West).

Symposia Talk: The Twenty Teachings of Cacao

Join ChocoSol’s Founder, Michael Sacco, and special guest, Dr. Wayne Roberts, for an evening of re-discovering the food of the gods: the twenty teachings of cacao in glyph format. Come savour and contemplate our emerging ideas on the profound wisdom buried in the spiritual ecology of cacao and the beauty of chocolate drinks and foods. These thoughts and presentation are part of Michael Sacco’s Indigenous Studies doctoral thesis.
 
Wayne Roberts will moderate the evening, and Michael will share bites of knowledge, bits of chocolate, and frothing cacao drink, with a side of fresh beautiful Oaxacan coffee.
 
$10 suggested donation, includes chocolate bites and drink.
In the spirit of potlatch, attendees are welcome to bring vegetarian food that is free from nuts and dairy to share with the group.
Attendees will have the access to a $20 special chocolate deal with an autographed copy a Wayne Roberts book
