A notice to all that we will be closed Sunday October 16th
Why? Potentially the biggest storm to hit this part of the world, at least since 1962, with potentially 150kmh winds and lots of rain…enough rain to fill the pond for the first time EVER. We will be open the following Sunday Oct 23rd from 10am-2pm. People can also make private appointments to buy plants. email firstname.lastname@example.org

Things to think about:
- Steep driveway: Park a car at the bottom in case the rains wash the driveway out
- Sand bags might be needed … Brock White in Langford has stock of thousands of polypropylene sand bags (unfilled)
- Water purification…
– boil 1 minute, or
– Water Tabs, or
– 3 drops of Lugol’s strong iodine per litre shake and let stand 30 minutes, or
– 2 drops of Lugol’s strong iodine per litre and stand over night
- Top up propane
- Chainsaw: ensure you have your oil/gas mix all ready, sharpen the saw, top up chain oil, and test the saw.
- Check in with your neighbours
Wish you all well
