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.

Little did Neal Peterson know that if he pressed Pasadena to clean up the weeds adjacent to his La Cañada yard that workers might come close to torching his house instead, but these things happen. While Peterson and the rest of us plug along doing the best we can to live good and honorable lives, holding doors open for strangers while scanning the ground for lucky pennies, a certain amount of unpleasantness is sure to come our way. And I say this as a woman who worships at the altar of optimism.

A contingent of La Cañada Flintridge residents are spearheading a grassroots effort to generate money and volunteers to assist in the re-forestation of Angeles National Forest.

This is the second in a three-part series focused on how we can make our lifestyles healthier in order to extend and improve our lives. ? Last week we talked about improving our eating habits. What about activity? According to a July 2004 study in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine, older adults who exercised only once a week were 40 percent less likely to die in the next 12 years than those who did nothing at all. Staying active sure beats needing help with driving, tying your shoes, or cleaning your own home ?

La Cañadans may have noticed a new flag flying high between American Valley Mortgage and Hill Street Café on Foothill Boulevard last Thursday. The pole has been there for over 50 years but had been overtaken by weeds and neglect until a few Girl Scout Troops in La Cañada decided to restore it. The girls stood in silent salute as the flag was marched toward the pole by scouts Shirley Drange and Erica Tavera marched toward the pole. The flag was raised, the girls were then dismissed to the sound of cheers.
