4131 West 4040 South (4040 South), West Valley City, Utah 84120


Merrill, the homeowner, is a bee keeper, along with several other homeowners in his neighborhood. 

Sat. June 18, 6:30 pm: 30 minute Bee Keeping Class

7 - 8:30 pm:  Work in the garden, weeding, etc. 

This is an impressive garden and yard that he and Christy don't have time to keep up this summer.  He is in school all summer taking 24 credits, getting 2 degrees and caring for his family of five.

 

This garden has several other crops we don't have in our other gardens!

Currently these crops are growing:  asparagus, black currents, rhubarb, raspberries, plum and cherry trees, almond tree, roses, pear tree, 3 kinds of grape vines, leeks, onion, chives, Swiss Chard, collards, etc.

 

Merrill and Christy are long time hiking friends of mine.  Considering his demanding schedule, Merrill is very generous in teaching us about bees.  It will be fun making friends with more Bee Keepers in his neighborhood as well. 

 

We will distribute harvest for those who RSVP a head of time.
