On today’s show Chris Cherniak and guest host Katy Wang covered three types of harvesting activities.  First, beekeeper Doug Fryer discussed how he harvests honey from his local hives.  What’s the process like? And what do all those female bees do for the next five months? Then Ken Kullack, executive director of the Summit Community Garden, discusses how their “garden grew.” He also talked about their garlic planting event they will be holding at the garden Saturday, October 10.

The Park City company, a Local Table, is continuing its efforts to offer food from local growers and farmers. Rick Brough has more.

Based on a survey of its supporters, Summit Community Gardens has decided to close down its community gardens and instead focus on education. KPCW's Leslie Thatcher reports.
