Avon Valley Floral Plans Rebuild After Greenhouse Storm Damage

One of Nova Scotia's largest greenhouse operations is still dealing with the cleanup of last winter's storm damage, which destroyed about two dozen of the company's buildings. 

Avon Valley Floral in Falmouth, N.S., lost greenhouses covering about two hectares when the plastic and glass structures buckled and collapsed under the weight of snow and ice last winter. The weather also put another hectare's worth of buildings out of commission.

Despite losing 70 per cent of its plant-production capacity, president and CEO Kevin White says the company, which supplies florists and garden centres, is committed to continuing operations. 

He says they're looking at the rebuilding process as an opportunity to modernize the facilities.
