Chocolate Workshop = a Delicious Success!

Some years ago, we hosted a Chocolate Making workshop at the Farm that some of you may remember. Long-time volunteer and honorary member, Marilyn VanEmber, learned to make chocolates many years ago while attending a workshop locally. Marilyn joined us again last weekend, along with her friend, Janet, and lead our Valentine’s Chocolate workshop. It was a tremendous success! Participants left with dozens of hand-made chocolates, from peppermint patties to turtles. What a great way to spend a Saturday afternoon. Many thanks to our two volunteers, Marilyn and Janet, and all of the participants that joined us! Read More →
