Just a reminder of tomorrow’s regularly scheduled harvest at 5 PM. We expect there to be loads of produce, including peas, kale, Swiss chard, lettuce and more! See you there…

…because it’s Trivia Night at the Kickin’ Caribou! Thursday, August 20 at 7 PM – be there or…well, you should just be there. Bring your friends or join a team at the pub. See you then!

Also, please note that the greens harvest for this evening will be cancelled as there has not yet been enough growth of our lettuce to warrant the extra collection. Next regular harvest is Tuesday at 5 PM.


Don’t forget…it’s our regularly scheduled harvest day. See you just after 5!

Welcome to August and (knock on wood!) a bit of summer once more!

With the sun shining brightly, we’ll have to remember to check on the greenhouse to ensure the plants are being watered sufficiently. If you have signed up for the Operations Subcommittee, now’s your time to shine! Sign up for the watering schedule so we can take advantage of the sunshine and kickstart our new plants.

On a more serious note, please ensure that both the front and back doors are closed and locked securely once you leave the greenhouse. If you are having trouble getting the doors to lock, please speak to a board member or let us know via email as soon as possible.

As there has been slower growth with our lettuce crops, we will not be holding today’s supplementary greens harvest. We apologize for the inconvenience, but will see you on Monday, August 10 for our regularly scheduled work party/harvest.

Yesterday, we chatted with APTN’s Kent Driscoll about growing food in Iqaluit. Keep an eye on APTN News in the coming days for his report!


With a bit more water and sunshine, our lettuce crops will be ready for another harvest!

Good morning Greenhouse lovers! Sorry for this last minute reminder, but better late than never! Work party / open house / harvest today from 11-1. See you there!

Firstly, thanks to everyone who came to trivia last night. We had our most successful night in the history of all trivia nights! Save the date for our next trivia night: Thurs Aug 20th!

Be sure to come out to our next work party / open house Friday July 17 from 5-7pm! Members will be able to get a share of the harvest and for those who are not yet members, you can sign up then!

Happy almost weekend everyone!!

Happy Monday everyone! Quick reminder that we’re having a bonus harvest of lettuce today simply because our lettuce is doing so incredibly well! Come out between 5-6 to grab your share. Our next normal scheduled full harvest will be this Friday 5-7. Hope to see you out!
