Dave was born and raised in Parma. He and his wife Sharon Hines moved into their present home in 2004 and have been developing the garden ever since. Dave wrote up a proposal so that he could rent land from the railroad. Three years ago they planted their orchard on that land which is directly behind their lot. They have the following fruit trees, apricots, peaches, plums, cherries, apples, a grape vine, blueberries and brambles a paw paw and a butternut tree--- a total of about 30 trees. Dave installed his second bee hive this past weekend. The hives are kept on the garage roof.
