FOR OUR EMPLOYEES
All Montebello Unified Schools to Participate in Farmers Market
WHAT: Fresh, natural produce is on the menu as student gardeners
from 28 participating schools gather to sell their bounty of
fruits and vegetables. The Montebello Unified Farmers
Market provides a vital, low-cost alternative to
supermarket-procured fruits and vegetables and works to
promote healthy lifestyles throughout MUSD’s communities.
Students will sell tomatoes, celery, onions, leafy greens,
fruits and herbs and school spirit items to support their gardens,
while ballet folklorico, Zumba, tap and ballet and other
performances entertain the crowds.
For more information, the community may contact John
Garza at 562-544-6684.
WHEN: Saturday, Sept. 24
9 a.m. to noon
WHERE: Rosewood Park School
2353 S. Commerce Way
DETAILS: More than 2,000 students at 28 schools are involved in
gardening programs throughout Montebello Unified. The District
has implemented student-run gardens at each school to promote
principles of sustainability and water conservation and to create
a healthier school district, and in turn, a healthier community.
Increased support for urban farming and organic produce
around the Southland mirrors the Montebello Unified
commitment, spreading awareness about the importance of
healthy eating, both in schools and at home.

On behalf of our team here at Montebello Unified, we are excited to welcome you back for the 2016-17 school year! I hope everyone enjoyed their summer break and are ready to embark on the wonderful educational opportunities we have planned.
