Give Grapes a Try!

Our LifeSPAN featured fruit this month is Grapes. Did you know that there are more than 10,000 varieties of grapes around the world?! During our lesson this month, our LifeSPAN students will get to try 4 of those varieties. Some students may not get the grape lesson until after Spring Break. In the meantime, click on the pictures below to check out some great grape recipes from Michigan Harvest of the Month™.
