We may not be growing something as spectacular as this flowered Canadian flag, but we think growing our own food in the arctic is still a pretty Canadian thing to do. Come on out to the greenhouse on Canada Day starting at 3 PM. This could be our first harvest of the summer!

It’s time for another work party this evening. Come out tonight and see what needs to be done to keep our plants growing, happy and healthy. See you at 5:30! Not a member yet? You can become one at the greenhouse. Or better yet, purchase your membership online!

We were very privileged to welcome some special guests to the greenhouse today. Thanks to the staff and grade three students of some of our local schools for coming to learn with us.

We learned about how greenhouses work, worm composting and how things grow. We even got to plant some yellow beans to grow at home.

We look forward to welcoming the students back in grade four at the end of the greenhouse season.

Don’t forget about Sunday’s work party at the greenhouse. We’re back into our regular eight day rotation. We’re planting and soon enough, we’ll be harvesting food! Become a member today and take advantage of the freshest veggies in Iqaluit!

Trivia’s back! Come out and have some fun, win prizes and support the ICGS!


On Monday, June 1 at the Municipal Council Chambers, the ICGS will be presenting to the City of Iqaluit Planning Committee. We are looking to expand and will be outlining our plans for future work. The meeting is open to the public and begins at 6 pm. We welcome your interest and support.
