We have had the privilege again this year to donate plant materials to the Rice County Habitat for Humanity housing projects. Knecht’s Nurseries deeply appreciates the support of the greater Northfield area and has as a part of our mission to give something back to the community on an annual basis.
Shown here is one of our employees – Luis Olave – who volunteered on his day off to help with the project, and Todd Uplegger planting a large balled and burlapped maple tree which we donated to the project at 230 Spring Wheat Drive in Dundas, MN. We also donated plant materials to the house being built in Lonsdale, MN at 127 Elm Street N. Our hats off to Luis!
The Habitat for Humanity program gives a start to families that have struggled in the past and have met the criteria for being selected as a recipient for the homes. The formal dedication for these homes is Sunday afternoon, August 29th. More information on the dedication of this year’s homes can be found in the article in the Saturday, August 28th, Northfield News.
