Before it was known as Silicon Valley, the Valley of Heart's Delight was the center of the fruit canning industry. This manufacturing history shaped San Jose and left a legacy that can still be seen to this day. Join us for a discussion about the rise and fall of canning in the South Bay with a third-generation canning company operator.
