Retired accountant Marten Vonk checks one of his backyard beehives Thursday Oct. 17, 2013 in Boise. Vonk discovered the Nextdoor app could raise his profile as a beekeeper / honey seller in Boise's Borah Neighborhood. He posts info on the app about availability of honey from his 17 hives and people place orders or make arrangements to pick it up at his house.
