Cesar Chavez Breakfast:
Thanks to Latino Network, some of our students met Cesar's grandaughter, Julie Chavez.  Julie is also the State Director for CA Senator, Kamala Harris.  Julie's dad, Arturo Rodriguez, came to our garden last year and planted a peach tree with Cesar Chavez Club.  
Thank you to Julie for taking the time to meet with us and sharing her memories of her grandfather.   
 
 

What the Cesar Chavez Club is up to:

America's Top Farmer Visits University Heights MS Garden
Arturo Rodriguez 1
The Cesar Chavez Club at University Heights Middle School was delighted to welcome United Farm Workers President Arturo Rodriguez, of the organization that Chavez himself founded. This, just one day after Cesar Chavez Day.

The students showed off their garden, and asked Mr. Rodriguez to help them plant a peach tree. Then, the students served him up an ice cold glass of fresh squeezed lemonade direct from their garden. It was an incredible honor to learn growing techniques and irrigation tips from such an iconic figure in America's farming community.
