Please join us at the greenhouse on Thursday, June 27 at around 5:30 PM to seed the last of the bed’s with this year’s new arrivals.  There are still individual pots available for use on the shelves as well.

We will be accepting membership applications and payment.  The door code will be changed shortly for greenhouse access and only paid members will be advised, so get your payment in as soon as possible!

Finally, CBC North will be paying us a visit for around 6 PM for an interview and to see us working.  Come out and let’s give them a good showing!

Thanks to everyone who attended our AGM on Saturday. Those present voted in a new board and also decided on an important question that was posed in our survey – how would you like to grow this year?

It turns out the majority of those present decided that we all want a stronger community atmosphere. We will be trying out a new greenhouse model this year and are very excited about it. Instead of individual plots, all members will be responsible for helping to grow everything in the greenhouse this year. And with changes comes a strong need to plan.

We will be holding our first Greenhouse planning session this Thursday (May 16) at 5:30 PM at the Nunavut Research Institute board room. If you are interested in becoming a greenhouse member this year or just want to know more, please come out to the meeting. We will be laying out the guidelines for how we want to grow, what seeds we will be planting and so much more. Bring snacks…or we can order dinner.

Be a part of an exciting new change for the ICGS! We hope to see you there!

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…

We’ve had several of our members point us in the direction of this fascinating article.
