Melissa has been engaged in the chocolate industry in various roles for over 10 years, ever deepening her love for cacao and its producers. She has visited farms and processors in Côte d’Ivoire, the Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Ghana, Nicaragua and Viet Nam, and volunteered on a farm in Granada.

Lecture and knowledge class – All Ages

Fresh juice provides us with minerals, vitamins, essential fatty acids, carbohydrates, proteins and much more. All of these factors are vital to maintaining good health. When we juice veggies, their goodness is released from the fiber and we are able to drink their highly concentrated nutrients which are then able to enter our bloodstream very quickly.

Learn:

How to use a juicer, get recipes and the health benefits gained from juicing,

The pros and cons of different juicer models,

How to use and clean a juicer,

How to maximize the nutritional value from juicing veggies.

Everything you've always wanted to know about juicing and more! Samples are provided.
