New England Botanic Garden at Tower Hill - Chocolate and Vanilla

Just in time for Valentine’s Day: a deep dive into everything chocolate, and a delight to the senses!

Travel to the Pacific coast of Costa Rica, where there is a very special organic farm where they raise vanilla beans, cinnamon, peppercorns, and cacao for chocolate and more.

Learn about the growing and drying process – and enjoy tastings of different types of high- quality chocolate.

Other Information: Samples will be available for $4, payable to the instructor on the day of the workshop.
