Description:
The heart of the California Delta emerges from the swampland and overflowed lands of far eastern Contra Costa County. Here at the junction of the Sacramento and San Joaquin Rivers is the epicenter of California’s water wars. It is also the home of water skiing, yacht clubs, farming, Native Americans, levees, tules and tract homes. 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.
