Two posts in as many days?  Surely it can’t be approaching another growing season!  But yes, we say.  We are very excited about the events that are coming your way and you should check us out in the coming months.

First, we are getting ready to welcome back trivia night at the Kickin’ Caribou Pub!  With love in the air, questions will have a bit of romance with our Valentine’s Day theme.  Come out and support the ICGS on Wednesday, February 11 at 7 PM for our first trivia night of 2015.  It’s only $5 to enter and there are prizes to be won and fun to be had.  We hope to see you there!


We have a fantastic community up here in Iqaluit.  One of the reasons for that is having people up here who are willing to donate their time and talents to a good cause.  One of those individuals is Mark Aspland.  He is currently working at Atiigo Media as a Videographer, and just happened to be willing to help us out with a promotional video.  Thanks to Mark for making us look so great!  Check it out!

Sorry for the late notice everyone!  Unfortunately due to circumstances beyond our control, we have had to relocate from the Francophone Centre to the Elk’s Lodge, who are generously allowing us to use their facilities on last minute notice.  The unfortunate change is that we can no longer allow children to the venue – we apologize profusely to those of our members who were planning to bring their children.

We will still be aiming for 6, though will likely start sharing our potluck closer to 6:30 to ensure most attendees will be there.  Our band will still be able to play after the dinner as well.

Thanks to Tamara and Sara who have been diligently attempting to reorganize at the last minute!

Come out to our bonus harvest this Thursday at 5:30 to harvest the last of the potatoes! 

Potatoes are really fun and rewarding to harvest and the Board would like to share the fun with all members! Most of the potatoes will be used to make a potato salad for our fall harvest party, but if there are leftovers, we will be distributing them in our usual sharesies kinda way. Hope to see you there!!download

Harvest Party


Make sure to come to the Greenhouse this Friday at 5:30 for what may be the last harvest of the season. We’ll grab the rest of the kale and swiss chard, and assess the carrots, daikons, and potatoes (they might need another week…). There’s lots to do to put the greenhouse to sleep for the season, so be sure to come by!
