Lance Yedersberger, president of LISCO, operates the trenching equipment for the Fairfield Community Orchard's new drip system to water the trees. Pictured with Yedersberger are Avi Pogel, Scott Timm and Tom Barret who have spearheaded the project to prepare the orchard for the installation of the drip system.Thanks to a grant of $1,300 from the Greater Jefferson County Foundation to purchase the drip system and LISCO for trenching the orchard for the installation, it is now time to invite volunteers to join them between 8 a.m. and 2 p.m. Wednesday to install the new drip irrigation system. LISCO donated $9,000 worth of trenching, so the hardest work is done!
