Hunger Awareness Week

At Multi Shelter Solutions, we are committed to helping eliminate food insecurity and people going hungry. During the pandemic earlier this year, we were fortunate to be considered an essential service due to providing structures to grow food and take care of various equipment, animals and other tasks on the farm.

We have helped numerous food banks, particularly associated with schools, to help grow food for the people who need to use them. Partnering with schools, this also allows the ability to teach the kids how to grow the food that they, and their families, are eating.

This future planning and thinking is a sustainable way for all of humanity. With this week being Hunger Awareness week, we want to highlight this special cause and initiative, that is needed all year long. Through our Giving Back program at Multi Shelters, we have donated to various charities that provide food, as well as donating structures to communities in need. If you or someone you know has an organization that could benefit from this, please reach out and have a discussion from Norm about how Multi Shelters can partner with you to help make food insecurity a less prominent concern in our society. And please, if you see someone in need and can help, please do. We are all connected, we are all one.

Preparing for Hurricane Teddy

We had previously shared this ahead of hurricane Dorian last year but it is all still very relevant ahead of hurricane Teddy. Please be safe and prepare what you can. We at Multi Shelters will hold you in our thoughts this week

To our east coast customers, please note, with Huricane Teddy approaching, there are some key things you need to do to prepare and give your structures the best chance possible of surviving.

It is critically important to inspect all the greenhouses and their anchoring systems.

If you have anything extra which can be used as an anchor … use it in the direction of the prevailing winds.

Make sure that there are no loose ends of wirelock lock inserts or any plastic coverings.

Make sure that there are no frayed parts to any ropes on the tunnels and that the ropes are TIGHT.

If you see things coming apart during the storm and it is still safe to go out, cut the cover, it is easier to replace the cover then the whole structure.

If you have any questions or concerns, please email or phone us this week, we will respond to every email and please, most of all be safe, our thoughts are with you

Savings for Newfoundland!

A chance for Newfoundland growers to save on greenhouse shipping!

Right now we have received a large structure order which is not quite enough to warrant our truck going to the island.

This is your opportunity to save. If you act quickly, there is time to put a truckload together and have your building delivered to your door by the manufacturer.

For a long time now the growers in eastern Canada have worked together with us to make their structure shipping less expensive and more timely.

By planning ahead, we group things together so the freight component is less. Get your order in next week to take advantage of these savings! We look forward to helping you with your project!
