Greenhouse


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!

Yes, it’s our last night. But fear not…we’ll just be taking a break. So come out to the Storehouse at 7:30 on Tuesday to get in a few more rounds of trivia before the greenhouse opens for the season. Come and see which team reigns supreme!Trivia_Plant-April18

So sorry for the confusion from the last post – there are still two more trivia nights left, including tomorrow night!

Come out to the Storehouse at 7:30 for some friends, fun, and fundraising for a good cause. We’ll be getting the greenhouse up and running again within a couple months! We hope to see you tomorrow!Trivia_Plant-April4
