What makes California the fifth-ranked economy of the world? Historically, agriculture has paved the way towards economic success. From Santa Barbara to Napa Valley, world famous wine is produced. The road in the middle of the orchard seems to be going on forever just like the wealth of our economy. Orchards have more than monetary value. They bring a sense of beauty to California that we should always appreciate. The orchards also give us the sense of possibility, that we can achieve any goal that we set our sights on. This is one of the wonderful things about California: The possibility of achieving anything we believe in.
