Learn which chemicals elicit biochemical reactions in the human brain, making chocolate the perfect drug. Mike will be sharing why chocolate is good for us, how much is healthy, what kind of chocolate we should eat and how to taste it for quality. We hear that he may have some magic tricks up his sleeve too!

Before coming to NECC, Mike was an instructor of chemistry and department chair at the College of Eastern Utah. He believes that education should be fun and exciting. Mike holds a Ph.D. in organic chemistry from the University of Utah where he specialized in oxidative lesions in DNA and RNA.

The Edible Garden Group was formed by community members who are interested in getting together to learn and share information about sustainable food growing – veggies, fruits, nuts. The meetings are focused on building community resilience through increasing the availability of safe, nutritious, sustainably-grown local food. For more information contact Deb Carey at
