Making Contact - April 21, 2006

Real estate prices in San Francisco are topping the charts. So, one would
expect West Marin County, just across the gold Gate Bridge, to be populated
by malls and big box stores. Instead, it remains an agricultural greenbelt
of family farmers. How did this happen?

Back in the days of horse-drawn wagons and hand milking, this area was
nicknamed "Cow Heaven" by one early rancher. Remarkably, it has held on to
this distinction to this day. In this edition of "Making Contact" we learn
how West Marin was permanently preserved as farms and agricultural open
space.
