OhloneThe Ohlone lived in Castro Valley for thousands of years. Spanish explorers called them "Costanoans" (Coast people). San Lorenzo Creek was a perfect location for a village. A variety of plants grew in the area that could be used for food, medicine and shelter. The creek attracted animals such as deer, elk, rabbits, squirrels, and birds.Homes were made of Tule reeds. Tule grows along marshes and creeks. The homes were not large because people only used them for sleeping. Ohlones spent most of their day together in the center of the village. Life in the village was not all work - there was plenty of time for games and relaxation. Illustration from "Indians of California", U.S. Department of the Interior.Acorns were the main food for Ohlone people. Acorns have to be cracked open, pou...

Castro Valley Taco Bell Destruction Filmed by www.CastroValleyForum.com Amongst the beautiful hills of Castro Valley , Down goes Taco Bell and up comes a new Taco Bell. Interesting that our beautiful town has over 10 fast food restaurants to choose from. The most fast food restaurants in a square mile throughout the East Bay. Is something wrong with this picture? We think so!!!! What is this teaching the kids of Castro Valley? Fast Food Is Good for you??? We could use some health food restuarants, and some fine dining in Castro Valley. Save some room for a little more entertainment and more activities for our children. Any ideas??? Let us know. We will be talking more about how we can all help make Castro Valley #1 Place to live in the East Bay. Thanks, Serenity Real Estate Team
