The Cacao tree (Theobroma cacao) produces seeds from which we make cocoa and chocolate. Imagine life without either of these yummy treats. Under threat from climate change, pests and disease, the Cacao tree is at risk.

Come see a real Cacao tree (currently fruiting), make a hot cocoa drink and nibble a little chocolate while you learn a little about the history of chocolate.

Meet at the Kitchen in the Garden.
