"La Verne's Borders: North, South, East and West"

A last look at La Verne's citrus industry comes at the north end of Avenida Del Risco in north La Verne. Orchard spray trucks once were an indispensible tool for citrus growers who presided over thousands of orange trees in La Verne. A new gated tract of 1998 homes named "The Vistas" pushes up against this truck and the abandoned shed.

With a green thumb and a green watering can, Lorraine Berten, a 13-year resident of Twin Oaks Mobile Home Park in eastern La Verne, tends to her plants. She also loves to sit on her porch and listen to her wind chimes while whistling at her two cockatiels.
