If your faraway friends ask why people come to live in your community, how will you answer?
Do you live in Southern California, where citrus fruit like oranges and lemons grow in some people’s backyards? Or north of San Francisco, where grapevines thrive? Does your home have a steep roof so that snow can’t pile on top? Do you often need a raincoat?
Maybe you live near a river. Maybe you live in the same city where your great-grandparents once migrated. Geography shapes California communities big and small, in ways you might not expect.
