Interested in learning more about the Delta? Los Medanos College’s Lifelong Learning Center is hosting a series of lectures on the history of the Delta. The lectures are being taught by Carol Jensen, local historian and Delta National Heritage Area Advisory Committee member.
At this lecture, Carol will discuss the history of the eastern islands in Contra Costa County. It is from these far eastern islands that asparagus, vegetables and fruit was grown, packed and canned to feed Europeans and military troops during five wars. Where is the ingredient source that secured the beer reputation that proclaims, “Guinness beer is great?” It is not the water from the Irish River Liffey after all. It is the grain farm production of our own “Far East” Contra Costa County.
Once again, thank you for your support and interest in this local history lecture series. Most appreciated.
