We’re nearly a month away from the holiday season, and Iqaluit is buzzing with excitement. This is the time of year when crafters are busily preparing their wares, and making preserves and baking are popular activities. The Iqaluit Greenhouse was so excited about our Thanksgiving Harvest sale, that we decided to do it all over again.

Come out to the greenhouse on Saturday, November 26 from 11 am to 2 pm to check out some tasty treats and fabulous crafts. You never know what you might find.

We remind everyone to dress for the weather. The greenhouse is not heated, so bundle up!

Even though the snow is falling, and the days are getting shorter, there are still plenty of ‘green’ things to do in town.

This Saturday from 11-1, we will be having a BONUS work party at the greenhouse, to get a few more things done before the winter really hits us. Come in your grubbies, and help out!

From there, we’ll walk on down to the Iqaluit Food Centre for a composting workshop from 2-4pm, hosted by Lynn Peplinski, bokashi composter extraordinaire. This free workshop will teach about the basics of bokashi, and show how you can makeĀ odour-free, worm-free compost in your own home.

It’s been a big week for the Iqaluit Community Greenhouse. We had an awesome tour of the greenhouse with Aakuluk Day Care….
