Get your thinking caps on, because the Iqaluit Community Greenhouse Society will be hosting its Trivia Night on Tuesday, June 28 at 7:30 at the Storehouse Bar & Grill. Come out for good food and have a good time supporting a good cause. See you next week!

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.

We’d like to send a huge thank you and shout out to the staff and management of the Kickin’ Caribou pub. We are so grateful for their support and assistance revolving around our trivia nights for the past couple years. We always had a lot of fun and are so appreciative that you helped the ICGS in such a generous way.

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!

Our Annual General Meeting was held on Saturday, and we have elected a new Board of Directors. Thank you to everyone who came out and participated. This society exists because of dedicated volunteers and we are pleased to see so many willing to help.

We will be updating our Board information following our first official meeting of the Directors.

Interested in what was discussed at the AGM? Have a look at Thomas Rohner’s feature in Nunatsiaq News. (One minor correction: trivia will be held on May 17, not May 10.)

Speaking of trivia…we’re switching venues to the Storehouse Bar & Grill. We’ll be starting at 7 PM and suggest a minimum donation of $5 to play. Come on out for Taco Tuesday on May 17th and test your knowledge of stuff!

It’s nearly that time. Our AGM will be held Saturday, April 30 from 1 – 3 PM at the board room of the Nunavut Research Institute.

We have so much going on this year – we hope you’ll be able to make it. Come out to learn about our recent business plan, funding opportunities, membership changes and chances to volunteer. We will also be looking to fill the ranks of our Board of Directors.

Hope to see you there.

It’s around this time of year when we see plenty of interest for new memberships with the greenhouse. We are expecting a few changes this year, so we will be temporarily suspending the purchase of new memberships until we hold our annual general meeting. There are a few tasks we need to complete before the meeting, so please keep an eye on this page for updates, as we hope to be announcing the date shortly.

Thanks for your interest in the Iqaluit Community Greenhouse Society! We hope to see you at our AGM!

With the new year comes an opportunity to reflect on days past. We’re going to give you that chance with our first trivia night in 2016…#ThrowbackThursday edition!

See you at the Kickin’ Caribou this Thursday at 7 for prizes and fun!
