Interested in joining the Iqaluit Community Greenhouse Society this year?  We make it easy for you!

Go to “Become A Member” and navigate towards the bottom of the page.  The 2015 membership package has been uploaded and you can pay your annual fees with cash, cheque or using PayPal (which allows you to pay directly from your bank account or through a credit card).

You can fill out your forms and send scanned copies back to us by email or drop them off at an upcoming greenhouse event.  There are also instructions on how you can drop them off during office hours to the ICGS.

We look forward to welcoming you to the ICGS!

On the heels of our own successful AGM, we encourage you to attend the AGM of another worthy organization in Iqaluit.  The Bill Mackenzie Humanitarian Society will be meeting tomorrow at 3 PM.  There will be some extremely important waste management issues discussed and the BMHS needs your input!

Please plan to attend!


Don’t forget…it’s our Annual General Meeting this weekend.  We’ll see you on Saturday at the Nunavut Research Institute boardroom at 11 AM.

Planning to become a member?  Come out and take part in the meeting, and then purchase your membership for this season!


Save a couple hours on Saturday, April 11 starting at 11 AM.  We’re still confirming the location, though, so keep an eye on this page for a confirmation.

We’ve got some exciting things coming up, so let’s talk about our successes from the past year and discuss the future, too. Join the ICGS as a member, or even as a board member.  We have plenty of ideas and want to hear yours, too.

Come on greenhouse season!  We’re itching to grow!


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!
