Exhibition Opening Gambatte Kimashita: Japanese Flower Growers of the Salinas Valley

In 2013, the Salinas Valley Japanese American Citizens League (SVJACL) initiated the SVJACL History Project – Japanese Flowers Growers in the Salinas Valley – in order to capture the stories of the Japanese immigrants who arrived in California after World War II and built a successful flower growing industry in the Salinas Valley.

The SVJACL team interviewed fourteen flower growers whose interviews are featured a documentary film, a curriculum developed for application in Japanese language classes, and an exhibition.

The exhibition, Gambatte Kimashita: Japanese Flower Growers of the Salinas Valley will be open Monday - Friday, 10 – 5 from September 7, 2018 – January 16, 2019.
