You’ve probably seen the signs around town or on Facebook. But if you haven’t, there’s still time to contribute!
If you have recipes that use country food or locally grown food from greenhouses or your window garden box, email them to email@example.com! We look forward to your contributions.
Psst! The deadline is Sunday, December 1!

We’ve been featured in some pretty great articles about food security and growing food in the north. Check it out!
Sub-Arctic gardens nourish northern communities – National Post
Farming in the Arctic: It can be done by Justin Nobel – Modern Farmer
We’re grateful that people around the world are paying attention to food security in arctic!

Come help us put the greenhouse to rest for the winter. It’s been a great season and we want to thank all the awesome members for their enthusiasm, great ideas, and hard work.
This Saturday from 11 AM – 1 PM, we will be meeting for our last clean-up, harvest, and FREE barbecue! We will be serving potato salad made with our very own potatoes! See you at 11!

Just a reminder that Monday, September 16 at 5:30 is a scheduled work party and potential harvest. Based on the weather, it will likely be one of our final harvests. Please come out if you can make it.
Keep your eyes and ears open regarding our end of season activities. Info is coming soon!

Well folks, this is the season that just keeps on giving! We didn’t think we’d still have produce to harvest at this point, but we have lots! Come on by tomorrow to the Greenhouse to harvest a few more items.
ALSO! BAKKERS needed for bake sale Sunday morning! We will be setting up in the NRI boardroom (next to the Greenhouse) to stay toastier this time around. Bring your baked goods by at 10:30! We also could use a few good BBQers dressed to be outside.
We made over $600 last bake sale/bbq. Let’s try and up that!
See y’all tomorrow.

Due to unforeseen circumstances, we will be postponing the bake sale and barbecue scheduled for Saturday until Sunday, September 8 (tentative). We apologize for any inconvenience. If you have already baked items to donate and would still like to donate them, we are looking at the option of donating via the Iqaluit Sell/Swap Facebook group.
Please be advised that the work party/harvest is still scheduled for Saturday, but it will occur at 12 PM.
