This month’s workshop theme:
In honour of Mother’s Day and Mother Earth, we will be focusing on ChocoSoil — our urban agriculture project. Here at ChocoSol, we recognize that in order to have the food of the gods you must begin with the soil of the gods. Join us on our rooftop garden, check out our seedlings, and take a peek at our worm composting. We will also be launching our specialty “Mom, I love you like cherries & chocolate” bar, made with stone ground dark chocolate and dried sour cherries. Bring your Mom to this event and we’ll gift her with a special treat to take home!
Get to know ChocoSol through the 3 T’s:
TASTING: Let an expert Chocosolista guide you through a tasting of our various cacao and chocolate foods, including beans, Mayan-style xocolatl (drinking chocolate), and artisanal dark eating chocolates.
TALK: Engage in an in-depth bean-to-bar chocolate talk (including discussions on the history and cultural teachings of cacao, chocolate making techniques, horizontal trade, and forest garden permaculture). Learn about ChocoSol as a social enterprise/learning community that embraces ethical practices, ecological sustainability, and the slow food movement.
TOUR: Take a tour through our production facility and get a behind-the-scenes look at how we make our award-winning chocolate food (NOT chocolate candy).
$20 per person in advance / $25 at the door (CASH only, subject to availability)
Attendees will also have the opportunity to purchase ChocoSol products at a reduced price.
