It’s almost time for our Annual General Meeting! As previously announced, we will be holding our AGM on Saturday, April 29, from 11 AM to 1 PM. The location will be the boardroom of the Nunavut Research Institute, building 959.

We have completed significant work on the greenhouse in the last year, and will have some brand new technology for growing this upcoming season, so please come out to find out what we’ll be up to. We’re planning for an exciting year!

An election will also be held to elect our Board of Directors for 2017/18. If you are interested in joining the Board, please let us know. You can find out about how to become a member as well.

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!

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!

We may not be growing something as spectacular as this flowered Canadian flag, but we think growing our own food in the arctic is still a pretty Canadian thing to do. Come on out to the greenhouse on Canada Day starting at 3 PM. This could be our first harvest of the summer!
