Fairtrade Fortnight: all about chocolate
Saturday 2nd March, 10am-12pm at Guille-Allés Library
A family event aimed at 4-11-year-olds to celebrate and learn all about cocoa and chocolate. Who grows cocoa and where? What are their lives like? How are the beans made into chocolate? How can we make the industry fairer for farmers?
