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 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.
