It’s going to be an exciting and fun-filled greenhouse weekend!

Saturday, June 14 – come out to the greenhouse between 11 AM and 1 PM.  Let’s get the season started.  We have soil. We have water. And now, we have seeds. We’re ready to get things moving and will be planting until we can’t plant anymore. Still not a member? Sign up online right now!

Sunday, June 15 – still need a gift for your father that will be useful and help a local organization? We are holding a car wash and barbecue fundraiser at the fire hall between 10 AM and 2 PM. Our first attempt at a car wash this year was postponed due to low temperatures, so get on your dancing shoes and start your anti-rain dance for the day.

We still need volunteers for the car wash and barbecue.  Can you help? Sign up here! Every minute you can help counts.

Due to temperatures hovering just below freezing, the ICGS has decided to cancel today’s car wash.  Please keep an eye on the website for more information, as we are hoping to hold another on Father’s Day weekend in June.

Instead, we will be inviting new members and anyone interested in having a look at the greenhouse and learning about our organization to come out from 11 AM to 12 PM.  Several members of the Board will be there doing some prep work, beginning to clean up the grounds and if we can get our barbecue going, cooking up some burgers.  We can answer your questions, take your membership applications and let you know how you can help.

Come check us out!

Don’t forget…the ICGS is holding a car wash fundraiser on Saturday, May 17 from 10 AM to 2 PM at the Iqaluit Firehall.  That’s tomorrow!

We are still looking for volunteers to help with washing cars and barbecuing.  If you can donate a couple of hours, please let us know.

As the weather is still iffy in terms of temperature, this event may need to be postponed at the last minute.  The ICGS Board will be making the decision in the morning and will post to the website, Facebook and Twitter by 9:30 AM if we will need to postpone.  Keep your fingers crossed that temperatures reach above freezing!

CarWash-May17

The ICGS will be hosting a barbecue and car wash on Saturday, May 17 from 10 AM until 2 PM and we need your help!  Help us spread some greenhouse love by making some of Iqaluit’s dirtiest cars clean and shiny.  If you can volunteer for the whole time or even just an hour or two, we would love to see you out there.  Email the ICGS to confirm your participation.

The Iqaluit Community Greenhouse Society is looking for some help in a couple of different ways.

First, we will be participating in the rummage sale at Inuksuk High School this Saturday, February 1 between 11 AM and 3 PM.  The rummage sale will raise funds for the school’s Environmental Club trip to the Galapagos Islands and we are excited to help them reach their goals.  As a side benefit, we will be able to raise funds for our own cause as well.  We are looking for donations of items we can sell.  If you have any items you would like to get rid of, please contact the ICGS and let us know you will be bringing something.  Please bring your items to the school around 10:30 AM so we can begin selling them at 11 AM.

Second, Bernardin Canada has contacted us regarding a major publication that they are currently working on.  They are interested in speaking to farmers and growers across Canada regarding preserving and canning.  They are looking to chat about the area, specifically what products are grown, popular and local.  If you are interested, be sure to contact Suzanne.

Third, don’t forget about our annual survey!  If you haven’t filled it out, please give us your opinions!

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!
