Organic garden installed at Frazier Elementary

FALLBROOK — The Fallbrook Organic Garden Project has added another garden to the community, this time at William H. Frazier Elementary School.

This is the first of many gardens the organizing group hopes to have on the campus.

“I am sure the teachers, administration and students will enjoy the pleasure, taste and beauty of a garden,” said Jerry Weiss. “They are the sixth school <after Ivy High, Fallbrook Street School, Potter Junior High, Live Oak Elementary and Iowa Street> of the seven schools we will have gardens in by next year.

“We will install one at Maie Ellis next year, as we have it budgeted to do so with next year’s endowment. Potter Junior High will get its second garden bed in the next few days for special needs students who enjoy the gardening experience.

“This year we hope to institute a nutrition and cooking class to complete our edible schoolyards, to expand the enjoyment of the gardening experience.

“We are going to plant four tangerine trees on Live Oak Elementary’s campus to provide the student body with tangerines all spring, as we do at Ivy High.

“Thank you, Fallbrook, for your continued support over the past 15 years since we started the first organic garden at Ivy High School. The excitement is mounting!”
