We need your help! Please come out to the greenhouse to help us prepare for an upcoming special event. We will be meeting at around noon on Saturday to clean up the greenhouse and grounds so it’s in great shape. More details to follow on the excitement. Hope to see you there!


The greenhouse is growing so much that we will be holding a bonus harvest tomorrow evening at 5:30 PM.  Stop by to harvest some wonderful produce and then come out to trivia night at the Kickin’ Caribou Pub for 7 PM.  If you are unable to make the harvest, but would like us to put your share aside, please contact us to let us know!

Never visited the greenhouse?  Now’s a great time to check us out! During the upcoming work party on Sunday, we will also be holding a bake sale and barbecue.  Rain or shine, we will be at the greenhouse, grilling up burgers and selling some freshly baked items.  If you would like to donate baked goods to the sale, please ensure that you bring them to the greenhouse by 10:45 AM.  Bring your appetites!

Bake Sale-BBQ August 17

Don’t forget to join us tomorrow for our regularly scheduled work party and harvest.  We start at 11 AM!

Keep an eye out for updates on the next harvest – we’re planning a barbecue and bake sale to coincide.


Only one week until our next trivia night at the Kickin’ Caribou Pub (in the Hotel Arctic).  Come out and have some fun with us in support of the ICGS.  We’ll be testing your pop culture knowledge!

August 13 Trivia Night

It’s time for another work party! Hope to see you tonight at 5:30 to see what’s available to harvest…
