Community solar bridges Minnesota’s urban/rural divide
GREEN ISLE, MN -- Nathan Dahlke and his wife Amanda moved their four young children back to the farm a couple of years ago. The “farm” is where Nathan grew up, a plot of around 200 acres of land near Green Isle, a little less than an hour southwest of the Twin Cities.
He tells us the farm life, along with the values it imparts, is difficult to leave behind. “It's a beautiful life where you can wake up in the morning and witness all of God's miracles right before you, a calf being born and taking his first few steps and an egg hatching,” Nathan says.
Nathan moved away from his family’s homestead for about 15 years, but farm life beckoned him back home.
