ENCINITAS — About 10 ceremonial shovels yielded by city officials and dignitaries broke into the fresh soil around a section of Glen Park on Saturday, signifying the start of the city’s one-year long pilot project for the first-ever park where pesticides wouldn’t be used, and the official naming and planting of the Teresa Arballo Barth Fruit Grove.

About seven trees, ranging from a strawberry jam fig tree to olive trees to loquat and pomegranate trees, were planted along with several succulents.

Barth said that the fruit grove represented “what you can accomplish with cooperation and collaboration.”
