I am so glad you started this blog! As both one of your MG Volunteers and a farm writer and am glad to see UC Cooperative Extension talk about the diverse and widespread agriculture we still have in LA County.

I'm looking for a record of which crops were being grown, and where specifically they were grown in the San Fernando Valley during the 1940s. Does a land use map of some kind exist that relates this information? I found some 1940 WPA land use maps, but they only report that a section of land is "agricultural", if that..  
Thank You,

Greg, I do have a document that summarizes agriculture in the San Fernando Valley in 1939. It includes maps and statistics.  
If you would like me to email it to contact me at
