Partner Event


Santa Clara Valley from Mount Hamilton Road

Due to projected bad weather, this event has been postponed. We will post an update when it has been rescheduled. Sorry for the inconvenience!

On Thursday, February 23rd at 5pm, join the IMS and Veggielution for a conversation with author Anne Marie Todd about her new book, The Valley of Heart's Delight: Environment and Sense of Place in the Santa Clara Valley. This agricultural history explores the transformation of the Santa Clara Valley over the past one hundred years from America's largest fruit-producing region into the technology capital of the world. Todd describes Silicon Valley as a non-place, where weakened or disrupted attachment to place threatens the environment and community.

This is an in-person event outdoors in the beautiful SoFA Pocket Park in Downtown San José presented by San José State University.




Free event hosted by San José State's Institute for Metropolitan Studies, Veggielution and SoFA Pocket Park.
This event has been postponed.
