Honeywell and Cooper High School Team Up to Give Back

About 200 volunteers from Honeywell and Cooper High School spent the day at Oliver Kelley Farm in Elk River.

The Oliver Kelley Farm in Elk River was speckled with red t-shirts as volunteers spread across the historic farm working to revitalize the landscape.

Volunteers from Honeywell, Rebuilding Together and spent the day doing various projects on the farm, which included building a new wooden fence around the property and fixing picnic tables.

"Honeywell does a lot of volunteer work throughout the year," District General Manager Ben Lampron said. "We all live and work in the area and so it just makes sense for us to give back."

Honeywell employees had no problem chopping logs and hauling them around the historic site. The pieces were assembled into an old style wooden fence. Bob Quist, the site manager at Kelley Farm, says the fence sets the scene as visitors drive into the historic site.

"We're happy to have so many hard working volunteers," Quist said. "They really are adding a genuine look to the farm."
