Greenhouse


The 2nd Annual Sprouting Workshop is being rescheduled from today to Thursday during our regularly scheduled Open House. We apologize for any inconvenience. 

So many things are happening at the greenhouse this week, it’s enough to make your head spin!

But if you spin on down to the greenhouse instead, you’ll find lots of fun, friends, and food. Here’s our breakdown for the week…

Trivia Night: Come out tonight for the last trivia night before our Fall League starts. Warm up your brain, and organize a team for the league. See you at 7:30 PM at the Storehouse Bar & Grill!

Thursday and Saturday Open Houses: There is always plenty to do during our open houses. Weeding, watering, planting, and harvesting. Come and see what we’ve got growing this week.

Sprouting Workshop: Join Josh to learn how to grow your own sprouts at home. If you’d like to take a sprouting kit home, be sure to bring a large jar, and a rubber band that will snugly fit around the mouth of the jar. We recommend a pickle jar, or a larger mason jar.

Hope everyone was able to enjoy the gorgeous long weekend weather – especially Monday! If you want to be reminded of the heat, you need only take a visit to the greenhouse.

We have a few things going on this week.

Come and check us out on Thursday at 5:15 PM and Saturday at 1 PM for our usual open houses. You never know what’s ready to harvest and take home. All are welcome!

This Saturday, we’ll also be holding our first of two annual summer workshops: Vermicomposting! From 2 to 3 PM, join Josh in the greenhouse to learn about how worms create rich soil from food waste.

Are you interested in vermicomposting at home? Be sure to bring two Rubbermaid-style containers of the same size, and we will supply everything else that you need. The size of the container should depend on how much space you have at home to create a compost bin, but generally a smaller size able to fit on a countertop will be suitable.

Stay tuned for next week…we’ll be hosting another Trivia Night and workshop!

Want to get a little warmth out of that crazy wind? Come on by the Greenhouse for some greens and fun! We will be watering, weeding, and HARVESTING! Produce is free so come on by for a nibble!

Questions? You mean…

Yes. That means it’s Trivia Time!

While we wait for the autumn to arrive so we can begin our Trivia League, we’re giving you a chance to come out and test your mettle. We’ll be holding a trivia night on Tuesday, July 18, and again in August. Stay tuned for further details.

Are you looking for an opportunity to volunteer at the greenhouse?

We need people to water the growing vegetables, which need daily watering. One watering shift will take around 30 minutes.  If you can commit to one day a week, that would be fantastic! If you can commit to one day a month, that’s great too!

We need volunteers Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday.

If you would like to help out, please get in touch with us by email or through our Facebook page.

Unnusakkut!

Please join us this Saturday from 1 p.m. until 4 p.m. for an afternoon cleaning the grounds and organizing lots of materials for this years growing season! We have lots of manual labour we need help with, so bring gloves, a motivated attitude and a bottle of water!

We have lots of exciting things planned for this year, but before we roll out new and exciting ways you can get involved in building a more food secure Iqaluit (& Nunavut) – we need to start from scratch and get things in tip-top shape! Looking forward to seeing you all there!

Ulluqatsiaritsi!
