The Center for Community Engagement invites you to register for the Farmworker Immersion Project (FIP) on Friday, April 21st from 8:30 am - 3:00 pm. The FIP is a program that places participants in the community to learn about farmworker rights, housing, and health resources. The FIP will guide students through the first-hand experience of typical farm work-life in Ventura County. We will visit a local berry farm, managed by Reiter Affiliated Companies, where students will learn about the agricultural business in our county, then work in the field as the farm manager instructs on how to harvest berries. In the afternoon, we will visit an affordable housing community, Villa Cesar Chavez Apartments, to learn about its history and to speak with farmworker families.
