Operations Volunteers


You’ve asked for it. And now we’re answering. Trivia Nights are back!

Starting on Tuesday, February 7 at 7:30 PM, come down to the Storehouse Bar & Grill for another great night of fun, food, drinks, and trivia! You’ll have a great time and be supporting an amazing local cause.

We’re still looking for volunteers to help. Contact us if you’d like to volunteer with either creating our fabulous question bank, or to assist on trivia nights.

See you there!

Happy New Year! Welcome to 2017! We hope everyone had a wonderful holiday break.

With the start of a new year, we are getting back in gear to start up trivia nights again. But we need your help.

We’re looking for some help for both trivia preparation, and to assist with volunteering on trivia nights. The only stipulation is that you would not be able to play trivia. Some tasks we need help with include question creation, collection of entry fees or 50/50 sales, and tallying of trivia round results.

Think you have the trivia chops? Contact us by email or send us a message at our Facebook page. We look forward to having you join our Trivia Night Team.

Stay tuned for our winter 2017 Trivia Night schedule…it’s coming soon!

The weekend is coming and that means we need your help! Come on out this Saturday from 11 AM to 1 PM to help us clear out the rest of the soil and start breaking down the wooden grow beds.

Sign up at our Facebook event page.

You’ve been asking and now we’re answering. We need volunteers!

The Iqaluit Community Greenhouse will be opening up on Saturday, May 21 from 11 AM to 1 PM for our first work party of the year. In order to clear the soil from the greenhouse to prepare for interior repairs, we need to make some room in our seacan to store it.

We’ll also be looking to distribute items that we have in the seacan to prevent them from going to the landfill. There may be some growing-related items you need to start your own garden at home, so come out and see what we have!

Let us know you’ll be coming out by signing up at our Facebook event page! See you Saturday!

Come out tonight to harvest the rest of this season’s bounty! We look forward to seeing you there!

We will be needing volunteers in the coming weeks to help close down the greenhouse for the year. Please keep an eye on this page for more info.

Don’t forget…it’s our regularly scheduled harvest day. See you just after 5!

Welcome to August and (knock on wood!) a bit of summer once more!

With the sun shining brightly, we’ll have to remember to check on the greenhouse to ensure the plants are being watered sufficiently. If you have signed up for the Operations Subcommittee, now’s your time to shine! Sign up for the watering schedule so we can take advantage of the sunshine and kickstart our new plants.

On a more serious note, please ensure that both the front and back doors are closed and locked securely once you leave the greenhouse. If you are having trouble getting the doors to lock, please speak to a board member or let us know via email as soon as possible.

As there has been slower growth with our lettuce crops, we will not be holding today’s supplementary greens harvest. We apologize for the inconvenience, but will see you on Monday, August 10 for our regularly scheduled work party/harvest.

Yesterday, we chatted with APTN’s Kent Driscoll about growing food in Iqaluit. Keep an eye on APTN News in the coming days for his report!

With a bit more water and sunshine, our lettuce crops will be ready for another harvest!
