My heart goes out to all of you who have lost much because of Fiona. Thank you for the pictures. The Preserve Co. is a must go to when my husband & I are in PEI. We have been there many times. We were lucky here in F’ton, NB to have escaped Fiona’s wrath. The heart ache & devastation we see onTV every night is sad. However us here ini Atlantic Canada are resilient. We will carry on. God bless all the helpers for they are there in troubled times. Georgie Ann Wilkins

We visited your lovely store and garden Monday 20 September. You were so helpful and friendly and the garden wonderful and colourful and relaxing. So sad to see all the damage you had to contend with. We have been thinking of you all .

Hi Bruce,
Glad to hear all of you are ok first of all. Sad to see the destruction the hurricane left with all of you to clean up. The garden was one of my partner’s favourite stops when we swung by in 2019 (it was his first visit to the Preserve Co) Wishing all of you many blessings and stay safe.

While on a cruise several years ago, I visited your store and gardens. It was so peaceful and I love your emails.
I live in Florida and we just had a tremendous hurricane. I am praying for all who were in the paths of these storms. God be with us.

My prayers are with you all. Thank you for sharing your pictures. We know that God is our strength and is always with us!

We all know the strength of your community, the strength of your families, and the strength of your faith. Together you will succeed in rebuilding the damage from the storm. Our prayers are for you and your business, families, and community.
All the way from Bayfield Ontario.

Hi everyone at preserve co. I’m so glad damage not so bad but must have been a scary time for all.
Thank you for the photos, I do appreciate them.
My preserve order arrived intact and very tasty.
I will be back to visit again.

So heartened to see that things are not as bad as I feared. Yes, there is lots of work to be done, but you are all a hardy bunch and I know you can do it. Loved seeing staff in the kitchen working to feed; touched my heart. Now I am waiting to hear from Bruce.

Good luck to you cleaning up nature’s fury.

Thank you for sharing these photos. They help us to see how much work is ahead. Most importantly that you are all safe.

Thank you so much for the update…I thought of PEI Preserves immediately when I heard about the storm’s projected path. I am so glad you’re all safe. Being a “desert rat” from Southern California, I have beautiful memories and photos of all the gorgeous greens and flowers…I’m sure it will all come back…I wish I could, but I’m there in spirit!!
