Allyn business donates plants to Habitat houses The AG3 Garden Center in Allyn donated 75 trees and shrubs to Habitat of Humanity of Mason County to be distributed to owners of local Habitat houses. The trees and shrubs are worth about $5,000, the nonprofit group reports. 'Tee know that landscaping really makes a house feel like a home, and we had the opportunity to do- nate to a great cause, and we are happy to provide Habitat homeowners with shrubs and trees," Kathy Arnold of AG3 Garden Center said in a news release. "Habitat's mission is to build simple, decent, af- fordable homes," said Tammey Newton, executive director of Habitat for Humanity for Mason County in a news release. "In keeping the homes affordable, we have a minimal budget available for landscaping. This gift from our community partner to Habitat families is wonderful." The homes are sold to partner families at no profit, and are financed through low-interest or no- interest loans. To be eligible, the family must have lived in Ma- son County for at least one year; be willing to work with Habitat for Humanity; have a steady gross income of 30 percent to 60 percent of the current me- dian for Mason County; be willing to work 400 hours of"sweat equity" as a down payment toward the new home; and be in need of a safe living environment. Habitat reccently completed a house in Belfair, its 23rd house. The group has started the ground- work for house No. 24 in Shorecrest.
