Last week, nine of us from Knecht’s Nurseries took part in the Minnesota Nursery and Landscape Association’s annual convention held at the Minneapolis Convention Center. There were three education packed days where our employees were able to attend seminars on landscaping, landscape design, info for garden centers and for business management. We took in seminars that offered ideas for companion plants, as well as what’s new and exciting. Two from our staff, Leif Knecht and Heidi Gervais, were presenters at the first seminar – “My Favorite Plant”.
Sharon Decorah, Shar Jacobsen, Richard Middleton and our landscape division manager, Jim Westlund, take in the seminar on My Favorite Plant. We feel that the educational oppportunties offered at the convention as well as the networking with others in the industry, is so very valuable. This is an excellent way to get pumped up for spring.
