Fremont Elementary School students stopped by the former site of Rockhaven Sanitarium in the 2700 block of Honolulu Avenue recently to plant some drought-tolerant plants donated by La Crescenta Nursery. The result was new landscaping for the nearly century old facility.
The once-a-month workdays at Rockhaven have become quite popular with kids. In fact, according to a workday organizer, at the same time that the Fremont kids were there, about 15 students from Crescenta Valley High School were on the property completing various chores.
The next Rockhaven workday is scheduled for May 2 and many high schoolers are expected to earn the last of their community service hours for the school year.
