Grow it, Try it, Like it! and Fun with Fruits and Veggies

Grow it, Try it, Like it! (Ages 3-6) Explore fruits and vegetables including how they grow and how we eat them!  During the class, kids will also be able to taste a yummy recipe using delicious fruits and vegetables.

Fun with Fruits and Veggies (Ages 7-12) Learn all about Michigan’s bountiful summer harvest focusing on a different Michigan grown fruit or veggie each week.  Learn about its’ nutrition, how to choose it in the grocery store and how to prepare a simple recipe with it.  Simple cooking skills like safety when cutting, measuring and mixing will be included.  At the end of the program, youth will be placed into small teams and challenged to create a simple recipe using surprise ingredients along with the fruits and veggies highlighted during the classes.  The winning team will be crowned the “Genesee County Parks Fun with Fruits and Veggies Champion” of Summer 2017!

Cost: FREE!
