What's happening at 7/11?

FALLBROOK – What's happening at 7/Eleven? It's another enhancement project taken on by Save Our Forest/Fallbrook Land Conservancy. Maintaining the trees SOF planted some years ago at 7/11 led to the owner, Mr. Singh, asking Save Our Forest about some landscape improvements at the site.

The owner suggested that they would support placement of some plants and maybe an antique piece of farm equipment which is significantly part of Fallbrook's agricultural heritage. Thus, the partnership of Save Our Forest and the Fallbrook Historical Society came about.

The historical society's role of selection and placement of an antique plow, over 100 years old, the SOF work reshaping of the dry creek bed, and installation of a state of the art irrigation system are ready for the next step of this partnership.

Using those words that everyone has heard before, "it takes a Village," Jackie Heyneman was quoted as saying that as in all things that SOF has been involved in over the years, it takes the support of local property owners to get the permit to plant the tree, other volunteers to maintain, and the most important contributor, Fallbrook Equipment Rentals.

Another important contributor to the project is Scott Spencer of the historical society, who helped plan the venture and provided the antique plow.

In this case, moving a large piece of farm equipment provided by the historical society was not an issue. With Russ Heyneman driving a backhoe, Jon Payne and Tim O'Leary helping load and unload, steering the piece to its new location at the site, was a piece of cake. Heyneman also said, "Thank you, Rick Windbigler, for 30 years of support."

More coverage of this project is to come soon.
