Hunting for Chocolate huntingforchocolate


Happy Earth Day. I could not enjoy chocolate as much as I do without an appreciation for where it comes from. I took this photo on a research project while in Ghana circa 2013. Today there are many struggles for cocoa farmers in West Africa. An environmental threat known as Black Pod stood out to me on my visit. Many trees were displaying the tiny black speckles on the outside of the football shaped pods, a sign of rotting cacao. Black Pod can be difficult for farmers to control. This fungal disease is only one of many threats to cacao growth and preservation in the Volta region of Ghana, West Africa. #ghana #earthday #cacao #conservation #slowfood #africa #hope #health #grow #good #farmers #cocoa #theobroma #volta #huntingforchocolate #madventures #memories #preserve
