After several months of being dormant, the soil will once again be tilled and seeds will be sown at the Harvest Garden, an educational program for special needs students at Descanso Gardens. Ask any gardener about their garden and you will get a wide variety of responses, from tales of battling weeds to witnessing growth, and most will be philosophical about what they learn from tilling the Earth. These life lessons are the real value behind the Harvest Garden. The garden was started in the 1960s by a group of volunteers who wanted an area that would be a learning and calming experience.

Just a few miles south and west of bustling San Francisco you will find Half Moon Bay, a rural oasis of charm set along pristine California seashore. It’s in this small village that you’ll find quaint shops and a little more laid-back pace than the bay cities less than a half-hour drive to the northeast. There are lighthouses and farms nearby, flower markets, spectacular tide pools and a harbor with the freshest of crab, salmon and halibut that find their way onto tables of some excellent local restaurants.

Northern California's Clear Lake By CARY ORDWAY Sometimes overlooked because of the state's spectacular Pacific coastline, California's fresh-water lakes offer plenty of getaway and vacation opportunities for the state's residents. One longtime favorite is Clear Lake, just a couple hours drive from the San Francisco Bay area. A friend visited Clear Lake not too long ago and came back raving about the area's unexpected scenic and natural beauty - so we had to investigate.

Dining With Duvall by Lynn Duvall Julio Ramirez Jr. waved to me as I stepped through the gates into the shady courtyard of a house above Foothill Boulevard in La Cañada. I'd come to chat with his wife, Annette Castro Ramirez, about her involvement as co-chair of the Capital Fund campaign for our Girl Scout council. I was distracted the minute I arrived - enthralled by the Old World boxwood hedges, a multitude of fruit trees, goldfish pond and an arbor surrounding a romantic, steep-roofed, stone house.
