We used a variety of information sources to create our site. Most of our information came from interviews with more than 150 local leaders. Some leaders came to our school to be interviewed; others we went out and found in the community. We interviewed friends, parents, teachers, government officials, community activists, artists, and local businesspeople. We found out a lot of things we didn't know before about Carpinteria!
One of our leader profiles was about Dorcus Wheelock, who started teaching in Carpinteria in 1880. To find out about her, we used a book, More About Carpinteria As It Was, Vol. II, by Jayne Craven Caldwell.The California Avocado Commission gave us permission to use their avocado man cartoon on our Avocado Page. We also linked to their site for the avocado quiz, and for some avocado recipes.
