Hi Everyone,
Join Common Good City Farm for an upcoming event: 

Living Wall Hangings: A Mounted Tropical Plants Workshop with Rock Paper Plant

Thursday, December 6, 6:30 - 7:30 pm
Bring a bit of the jungle into your home! In this workshop, you will learn how to make a beautiful living wall hanging with tropical vining plants. In their natural environment, these plants grow on rocks or trees, not in the pots you see at the garden store. You’ll learn how grow these plants vertically with a little bit of moss and tree bark and leave with your own mounted plant. 



Cacao Bite Making from Bean to Bar
Thursday, December 13, 6:30 - 8:30 pm

Learn how to make chocolates from single origin direct trade cocoa beans! Participants will be able to experience a complete Bean to Bar process of chocolate making including trying the roasted cocoa beans, cracking and winnowing the beans, grinding the beans, tempering the chocolate, and pouring the chocolate into molds. Each class will discuss the history of cacao, beneficial properties of cacao, and then practice making the chocolates. Each participant will get to make and take home their own molded chocolate.

Pre-packaged cacao bites will also be ready for sale. They make a great holiday gift!
