The Atlantic and Gulf Coast states were battered during hurricane season, but the Southern Nursery Association’s (SNA) Disaster Relief Committee played a role in keeping growers afloat with an online forum to share information and help those in need. The forum should also play a role as a grower tool in the coming months if growers encounter wintry dilemmas.
The forum is hosted on the SNA Web site at www.sna.org, and it’s available for anyone who wants to communicate or stay informed regarding an ongoing situation or natural disaster.
“After Hurricane Ike hit Texas, we offered the forum to the Texas Nursery and Landscape Association,” says Andy Zimlich, chair of the committee. “Any state or local association who needs to use the forum is welcome to do so.”
