LA Farm Girl Post on UC ANR Los Angeles Agriculture Blog

My first post for the wonderful Rachel Surls' UC Los Angeles Agriculture blog is now live!

These blog posts are part of the book we are working on together all about Los Angeles agriculture both past and present.

The post is part one, about how Los Angeles became the wine growing capital of California in the mid-1800s.

Also, there's a great post from Rachel Surls all about Self-Help Cooperatives of the 1930s and how, during the depression people bartered for goods, including harvesting farmers' crops for a share of the harvest!
