Panning for Gold

Did you know that Vallecito is a historic mining town? Come relive a part of history at Mount Zion Biblical Garden as you learn about hidden nuggets in the ground and in God's Word.

Miwok Grinding Holes
The Miwok people settled on this land many centuries ago and possessed a great understanding of God’s natural world. All resources were used with care and thanksgiving so they would continue to be available, and utilized fully.
Take a self-guided search for ancient grinding holes (“chaw’se”) – in seven locations at Mount Zion Biblical Garden – where women of the Miwok tribe once ground edible plants, acorns and seeds.
Hint: To find the seven grinding holes, look out for the large flat limestones outcropping in the meadow.
