The four-block path named The Pico Promenade connects north and south shopping areas in town. This tree lined path was planted by Save Our Forest (SOF) in 1997. Currently, it needs a big dose of TLC. Neglected in the past years, the three organizations who work to help with maintenance, Save Our Forest, Fallbrook Beautification Alliance and the Fallbrook Village Association, get support from San Diego County. The county helps by regularly removing major trash, debris, and other abuses of the pathway.
SOF hopes to find community support for a day of weeding Saturday, Aug. 12 at 8 a.m. The event will begin with attendees meeting at the end of Ash St. to check in and get entry for the Pancake Breakfast that follows cleanup.
With many working together, it should be a quick and serious weeding day (hopefully only 2 hours). "Many hands make light work," they say. Attendees are asked to bring their favorite weeding tools i.e., hand trowel, hoe, hula hoe, shovels or whatever might be needed to make the job faster and easier. SOF will flag all plant material that will be left so they will be easy to avoid. Don't forget to wear hats, gloves and comfortable work clothes. Water will be provided to keep attendees hydrated.
The Pancake Breakfast will be served in the Jackie Heyneman park nearby after cleanup. Please RSVP with the Fallbrook Land Conservancy office at 760-728-0889 to give them a headcount for breakfast. Everyone is invited to come and help keep Fallbrook beautiful.
