And later this month you can be covered in chocolate — not literally, though, as much fun as that might be.
During the garden’s “Chocolate-Covered Weekend,” visitors can indulge in chocolate samples and take part in family activities. You can visit the tree where chocolate begins and learn about the process to make the tasty treat.
Pastry chefs will be in the outdoor kitchen conducting cooking demonstrations and sharing tips.
Chocolate-Covered Weekend will be 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. September 21-22. Atlanta Botanical Garden is at 1345 Piedmont Ave. NE, Atlanta 30309.
The event is included with the price of admission, and is free for garden members.
While you’re there, be sure to check out “Imaginary Worlds: Alice in Wonderland,” which brings 31 enormous topiary-like sculptures to the Atlanta garden.
The Red Queen’s troops, the Cheshire Cat, a ridiculous chess game, a White Rabbit (and his pocket watch) and yes, Alice, are part of this exhibit, which AJC reporter Bo Emerson previewed in May.
You can see “Imaginary Worlds” 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday-Sunday through Oct. 27. For more information, go to atlantabg.org.
