We are providing an outlet for the sale of handcrafted plant stands by local woodworker John Gorder.  These plant stands are made using the wood from the trees damaged at Leif and Deb Knecht’s property during the Rice County tornadoes of 2018.  All proceeds will go to the Northfield Area Food Shelf.  The price of these plant stands is $89 and are available near the checkout area here at Knecht’s.  We are asking for cash or checks made payable directly to the Northfield Area Food Shelf.

John Gorder is a retired pastor, having graduated from St. Olaf College and served as a missionary in Africa and New Guinea with his wife, Gordeen,  for many, many years and then had parishes in Chicago and Minnesota.   Woodworking keeps him busy in retirement.  

John has donated his craftmanship, and we encourage you to donate now to the Northfield Food shelf by purchasing one of these beautiful oak plant stands.

Many thanks… 

Leif & Deb Knecht
