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!

Just a reminder of tomorrow’s regularly scheduled harvest at 5 PM. We expect there to be loads of produce, including peas, kale, Swiss chard, lettuce and more! See you there…

Don’t forget…it’s our regularly scheduled harvest day. See you just after 5!

Welcome to August and (knock on wood!) a bit of summer once more!

With the sun shining brightly, we’ll have to remember to check on the greenhouse to ensure the plants are being watered sufficiently. If you have signed up for the Operations Subcommittee, now’s your time to shine! Sign up for the watering schedule so we can take advantage of the sunshine and kickstart our new plants.

On a more serious note, please ensure that both the front and back doors are closed and locked securely once you leave the greenhouse. If you are having trouble getting the doors to lock, please speak to a board member or let us know via email as soon as possible.

As there has been slower growth with our lettuce crops, we will not be holding today’s supplementary greens harvest. We apologize for the inconvenience, but will see you on Monday, August 10 for our regularly scheduled work party/harvest.

Yesterday, we chatted with APTN’s Kent Driscoll about growing food in Iqaluit. Keep an eye on APTN News in the coming days for his report!

With a bit more water and sunshine, our lettuce crops will be ready for another harvest!

Even with the dreary weather in Iqaluit these past few weeks, our plants are thriving! To ensure that we get maximum productivity from all of our plants – primarily our greens – we will be holding additional harvests to keep the lettuce, spinach and kale healthy and happy. That means you can pick fresh food at the greenhouse every four days!

Our Google Calendar will be updated shortly to reflect the additional harvest parties. We realize that this may not last all summer, so always check the calendar for the most up to date events.

Don’t forget…we will be harvesting tomorrow from 5 PM to 7 PM. See you at the greenhouse to celebrate Nunavut Day!

July 8

It’s time for another work party this evening. Come out tonight and see what needs to be done to keep our plants growing, happy and healthy. See you at 5:30! Not a member yet? You can become one at the greenhouse. Or better yet, purchase your membership online!
