FAIRMONT, W.Va. (AP) - A memorial garden is planned in Fairmont to honor 37 West Virginian military members killed in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The West Virginia Department of Agriculture says an apple tree will be planted for each military member in a section of the orchard at Zion Heritage Farm. The section will be open to family members year-round.

A tree planting ceremony will be held at the farm at 2 p.m. on Saturday.

The memorial garden is a joint project of Zion Heritage Farm and West Virginia Veterans and Warriors to Agriculture.
