Long Description:
This mural was painted in 1996 and for much of the time has been fenced away from view. Recent renovations to downtown Watsonville made a small open plaza next to this mural which is on the side of a Main Street restaurant.

The mural is roughly divided into four sections, one of which is an image of an open "book" page which tells a story of Watsonville agriculture bilingually,

"Watsonville, where strawberries are sweeter, apples crisper and produce plentiful, is a friendly place of diverse people who share a strong sense of community and optimism. ...
Watsonville, donde las fresas son mas dulces, las manzanas mas frescas y los productos del campo abundantes, es un lugar amigable donde convive gente diversa con un fuerte sentido de comunida y optimismo, ..."
