The Iqaluit Community Greenhouse Society Board is actively seeking donations from the public, government services and corporations. In order to fund the many needs of the Society, we have applied to several sources for support. We are pleased to announce that our hard work has come to some fruition (pun intended!).

The Qulliq Power Corporation was approached and responded with a generous contribution!  This is a grant and will certainly go some distance in recharging our much depleted bank account.  We are very grateful for their support.

Are you a member of the Society or just want to help?  It’s easy!  If you are aware of a corporation or individual that can help us out with our yearly funding needs, please send any information you have to us and we will formally approach them for sponsorship.

Thanks Qulliq!  Spring is here and growing will start shortly in the greenhouse.  We have new compost, so the 2013 year will be a very green one.  Thanks also go to NorthMart for a discount on the transport and purchase of the compost.  We are indeed a community!

Save the date – the Iqaluit Community Greenhouse Society will be holding its Annual General Meeting from 11 AM to 1 PM on Saturday, May 11 in the boardroom at the Nunavut Research Institute.

Come out to hear more about membership, nominate yourself or someone you know to our Board and find out the results of our 2013 survey.

Hope to see you there…

Have you been a member of the Iqaluit Greenhouse in either 2011 or 2012? Are you interested in gardening with us in 2013?

Please help us out and give us your opinions! Visit our survey and let us know how you would like to grow in 2013.

We will be presenting the results at the upcoming AGM in May. Stay tuned for details…

AGM

With our AGM a couple days behind us, the 2012 growing season is right around the corner.  Our Board of Directors for this year is energized and ready for the coming year.

Board of Director Changes

We are sad to see two of our former Directors stepping down from their positions for this year.  Thank you for all of your hard work and dedication to our Secretary Tuutalik Boychuck and Rob Long, Director at Large and instrumental in our Operations for several years.  Both plan to remain part of the ICGS as gardeners.  Earlier this year, we also said goodbye to President Dilek Dee Karadag as she set off overseas for a six month adventure and stepped down from her Board duties.  Best of luck in your journeys Dilek!

The membership has voted in five new Directors to the Board.  Please join us in welcoming Francois Charest, Tamara Fast, Stephen Leyden, Robin Pitsiladis and Kelly Townson.  We look forward to the energy you will bring to the ICGS.

Board of Director information and positions will be posted online after our next Board meeting.
