Hurricane/Tropical Storm Checklist

Welcome to hurricane season!!  As we prepare for the storm, please secure anything that is not tied down so it doesn’t become a projectile that will damage the greenhouse or the church.  Please read and follow guidelines below:


  • Check all plants supported by trellis or cage to make sure it’s deep in the ground and stable.
  • Pick all ripe fruit because the onslaught of water and rain will ruin it.

Put away all lose items including but not limited to:


Community Garden Plots

  • All loose items must be taken home with plans to restore after the storm
  • Rest area table (flip over, legs up)
  • Chairs (stack &put behind shed)

Giving Garden

  • Watering cans (put in small shed)
  • Harvest buckets (put in small shed)
  • Wheelbarrow & Wagons (put in large shed)
  • Chairs (stack &put behind shed)
  • Tables (flip over, legs up)
  • Greenhouse – secure flaps; secure doors (Andy)
  • Bamboo shade – take down
  • Bird baths – take off pedestal and flip over
  • Fairy Garden – put away all small items
  • Bowl of Shells
  • Wood and Frames resting on sheds – lay down

Did we miss anything?  As you prepare, please look carefully to make sure anything not tied down is secured.  We’d love your feedback so we can update this list for next time.
