Stars of 2018 calendar: grapes

Foto calendari 2018 oacThe Formentera Council language department has released its 2018 calendar of 12 different kinds of grapes. With 2,000 copies printed, the Council is giving them away for free at the Citizen Information Office (OAC), the Sant Francesc library and the hospital. Each month comes with a photograph and a short feature on one of 12 grape varieties.

Last year's calendar spotlighted 12 photos concerning prehistoric Formentera. The Council began using the calendars in 2011 to showcase aspects of Formentera's history or popular culture and encourage locals to resurrect certain words. Past editions have turned on local trivia (a special edition which included questions and answers), highlights of the 20th century, Marià Villangómez, farming tools, fishing tackle, figs, prehistory and now grapes. The approximate cost of the calendars was €4,000.
