*shaking fist at Mother Nature*

Our second attempt at washing cars in Iqaluit has been cancelled, but instead of cold temperatures and wind, today it’s rain.

Thank you to all of our volunteers who answered the call.  Stay tuned for updates for next weekend.  We will be starting our regularly scheduled work party rotation next Sunday and we are still looking for ways to raise money.  I smell a barbecue!

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 end of summer in Iqaluit is almost here…and chances are, your car or truck probably got a little dirty this season.  But don’t fret!

The Iqaluit Community Greenhouse Society will be holding a car wash fundraiser on Saturday, September 1 from 10 AM to 4 PM at the Iqaluit Fire Station.  This fundraiser will be weather permitting, so watch for an announcement by 9 AM on Saturday if the weather looks iffy.

For only $20, we will get your car sparkling and shiny in preparation for winter.  This is the last long weekend of the season – take advantage of it (and us!) to get some pre-winter cleaning done!

Don’t have a vehicle, but still want to help?  We would love for you to come and wash cars with us!  Contact Suzanne Etheridge to confirm your attendance.
