TCHS creates fruit orchard during Covid-19 hiatus
Students may not have been on campus that November day during the Covid-19 closure, but in their absence the superintendent, principal, assistant principal, board members, and staff of Temple City High School stepped up to plant the school’s new 30-tree orchard!

It took a lot of hard work and patience to bring these fruit trees to the school. They appear to be in good hands here and will go to good use for Temple City students and community. Vitafusion Gummy Vitamins provided support to this project! FruitTreeProject

Veteran TC folk will recall that fruit trees were ubiquitous in the early history of the town. Among the many inducements to settle the area, the availability of small plots suitable for orchards was fundamental, and anyone over 70 will recall that many households had orange, lemon, grapefruit or avocado trees. The slope from north to south with little relief enables a "mountain and valley" wind that keeps temperatures steady, and the shallow water table and sandy soil make cultivation easy.

Plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose.
