I recently visited the garden of Corrine Bakken who has taken gardening to new heights and is reaping the benefits.

After retiring 23 years ago, Corrine and her husband moved to West Fargo to be near their family. Retirement didn't last long for Corrine, however, as for the past 20 years she has been working 40 hours a week as an aide on the West Fargo Public School buses. Even her 11 grandchildren and 22 great grand children are not enough to use up Corrine's energy.
