Why I’m a garden volunteer: Bill Baer

For Bill Baer, Basin Electric network security analyst III, gardening and spending time with his family has always gone hand-in-hand.

“Growing up as a kid I would go to my grandpa’s house every Saturday morning and work in the garden for quite a while with him. Then my parents gardened too, so I’ve always grown up with it,” Baer says. “It’s something I look forward to every year with my family.” Today, Baer and his family have a 40 feet wide by 100 feet long garden. “It’s a pretty good size. Some people even laugh when I tell them the size of it, but as long as you enjoy gardening and can still do it, why not?”
