EarthWorks Enterprises is a nonprofit job training and leadership development program for high school students who are employed to organically grow and sell fruit, vegetables, flowers and herbs to the community.
Youth sell fresh picked produce at our onsite produce stand each Saturday from 10 a.m. to noon. We sell fresh food to the low-income community at reasonable prices. Youth are empowered to learn the environmental and health benefits of organically grown fresh food, and advocate for healthier lifestyles in the community. Youth publish a monthly nutritional newsletter (ewent.org).
We are located in East Los Angeles County in the Whittier Narrows Recreation Area, just north of I-60, Santa Anita Ave Exit, off Lerma Road, next door to the Ramada Inn (1210 Santa Anita Ave, South El Monte, CA 91733).
