As a Los Angeles police detective, Roseanne Parino knew all about stress.
But whenever she needed a place of rest, she found it in her garden, which always provided a welcome pause from the pressures of her hectic career. Now retired, Parino serves as president of the Oak Park Community Gardens, which not only gives her the opportunity to indulge in her lifelong passion for gardening but also allows her to help others experience the same sense of tranquility and personal accomplishment that she has always known. "It gives us a sense of peace that we really need in these crazy times," she said, summing up the feelings of many of her gardening peers. Oak Park Community Gardens is an approximately one-acre site administrated by the Rancho Simi Recreation and Park District. By rule, the gardening is organic - no pesticides allowed. That's the way it has always been and that's the way it always will be, Parino said. "When the founders went looking for property, they saw this piece of land that had never been used for commercial or residential or industry," she said. "This land has never been a receptacle for any types of chemicals." "A number of gardeners come in as novices," Parino noted. "We have a great support network of other gardeners. "There's always something new to learn," she added. "If an odd bug shows up, we discuss it and have speakers to address gardening issues." Growing fruits and vegetables for the table is a great incentive to many patrons, especially with the high costs and inconsistent quality of the grocery store varieties. "But gardening also is a great way to connect with your children and grandchildren," Parino said. For example, when the heat of summer gives way to the chill of fall, Oak Park Community Gardens swings into its annual Pumpkin Patch, which is taking place this weekend. Life lessons The pumpkin patch is how Parino became involved in Oak Park. This sometimes leads to unexpected benefits, Parino said. "Kids tend to be picky with vegetables," she said, "but if they plant and pick their own food, they will enjoy vegetables that they didn't eat before." "Everyone has a story," Parino said.

After accompanying her granddaughter, T.J., to the Halloween event, the two decided to commit to developing their own parcel of ground. This sometimes leads to unexpected benefits, Parino said.
