About the Tasting the Tree of Life Event

At this one-of-kind event, balance your diet in a new way! Sample a savory BBQ jackfruit sandwich! Try crunching a cricket! These foods stretch across distant branches of the Tree of Life. It’s like a family tree; scientists use the Tree to trace the history of species living today back through time. At the Tasting the Tree of Life event you will have the opportunity to sample some new tastes alongside familiar favorites while learning about biodiversity and relatedness of your food.
