Students for Eco-Education and Agriculture (SEEAG) will join the Camarillo Public Library in commemorating Cesar Chavez and his contribution to agriculture, labor rights, and environmental justice. Following a reading of Kathleen Krull’s “Harvesting Hope: The Story of Cesar Chavez,” SEEAG will provide children and their families with a look into the importance of our agricultural workers, the crops grown in Ventura County and how these crops contribute to our nutritional well-being. The presentation at the Camarillo Public Library (4101 Las Posas Rd, Camarillo) is Thursday, March 31 from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m.
The event includes demonstrations, interactive games and free resource bags with fresh local produce. Through this presentation, SEEAG and the library are seeking to foster an appreciation for Cesar Chavez’s legacy, his impact on our agricultural community, and his message that, “Si se puede!” (“Yes, it can be done!”).
