Hope everyone was able to enjoy the gorgeous long weekend weather – especially Monday! If you want to be reminded of the heat, you need only take a visit to the greenhouse.

We have a few things going on this week.

Come and check us out on Thursday at 5:15 PM and Saturday at 1 PM for our usual open houses. You never know what’s ready to harvest and take home. All are welcome!

This Saturday, we’ll also be holding our first of two annual summer workshops: Vermicomposting! From 2 to 3 PM, join Josh in the greenhouse to learn about how worms create rich soil from food waste.

Are you interested in vermicomposting at home? Be sure to bring two Rubbermaid-style containers of the same size, and we will supply everything else that you need. The size of the container should depend on how much space you have at home to create a compost bin, but generally a smaller size able to fit on a countertop will be suitable.

Stay tuned for next week…we’ll be hosting another Trivia Night and workshop!

The Iqaluit Community Greenhouse and the Iqaluit Food Centre are holding a joint workshop on vermiculture worm composting. It is taking place at the soup kitchen tonight at 7:00 PM.

The workshop is free of charge but you will need to bring two large plastic bins as well as any newspaper that you can spare.

Hope to see you all there!
