Anyone have any supplies available for those impacted by Hurricane Sandy? Anyone out there have specific needs? Connect here.
When Hurricane Ike rolled through S.E.Texas back in 2008 we were without power for 10 days and it took me almost 2 months to change plastic on all the greenhouses after repairing the structural damage and I was actively growing 6 thousand Poinsettias out in the open. Those affected in the greenhouse/nursery industry will be off line for quite some time trying to cope with the situation and those that might have been living on the financial edge before the storm may very well not go back into business so I doubt we will see much activity from those who might need help here on the forum. It was very kind of you to offer a place though, to disseminate information that may help someone out.
I thank you as well to start a place for those in need to say so, but most of us growers are a proud bunch that hate to ask for help. But we are here for each other.
We are fortunate that none of our customers reported any serious damage to their GGS greenhouses, however we do keep a large stock of greenhouse parts on hand that can be used regardless of who manufactured your greenhouse and we are willing to help in any way we can. We have a rep in your area if you need assistance.
For anyone who has sustained damage to their greenhouse structure due to Hurricane Sandy, we are offering a 15% discount on the cost of parts. We will honor this discount until the end of the year. Just contact us through ggs-greenhouse.com and mention the Fresh Air Forum, and your discount will be applied.
If anyone provides holiday decor or products to the interior plantscape industry please contact me, we are offering free advertising in the December issue of I-Plants magazine to any suppliers effected by Hurricane Sandy. The deadline for the December issue is November 30. We reach nearly 1,500 interior plantscape professionals.
