If you want to get your hands dirty and go home with some radishes and salad greens, then come out tonight (Wed July 16 at 5:30) to our weekly work party.


July 8

and things are GROWING!! Come out to our regularly scheduled work party Monday June 30 at 5:30 for some weeding, transplanting, and a chance for members to plant in the window boxes! See you there!

Also, don’t forget trivia night Wed July 2 at 7pm at the Kickin Caribou!

Lots of fun Greenhouse activities this week so come out!

In an attempt to cover the cost of purchasing additional soil for this year’s growing season, we will be holding our second trivia night of the year next week.  Come out to the Kickin’ Caribou Pub at the Hotel Arctic on Wednesday, July 2 starting at 7 PM.  It’s the day after Canada Day, so brush up on your Canuck trivia and wear your best red and white.

It’s only $5 to enter per person – bring your friends and make a team.  You never know what prizes you might be able to win!

Now that the greenhouse has been planted, we have set up our regular rotation of work parties and potential harvest events every eight days.  You can see the next upcoming event in the side bar to the right of the main page of this site.

Upcoming events can be found in the right side bar of the main page.

Our second attempt at washing cars in Iqaluit has been cancelled, but instead of cold temperatures and wind, today it’s rain.

Thank you to all of our volunteers who answered the call.  Stay tuned for updates for next weekend.  We will be starting our regularly scheduled work party rotation next Sunday and we are still looking for ways to raise money.  I smell a barbecue!

It’s going to be an exciting and fun-filled greenhouse weekend!

Saturday, June 14 – come out to the greenhouse between 11 AM and 1 PM.  Let’s get the season started.  We have soil. We have water. And now, we have seeds. We’re ready to get things moving and will be planting until we can’t plant anymore. Still not a member? Sign up online right now!

Sunday, June 15 – still need a gift for your father that will be useful and help a local organization? We are holding a car wash and barbecue fundraiser at the fire hall between 10 AM and 2 PM. Our first attempt at a car wash this year was postponed due to low temperatures, so get on your dancing shoes and start your anti-rain dance for the day.

We still need volunteers for the car wash and barbecue.  Can you help? Sign up here! Every minute you can help counts.
