Garden Society in Inuvik receives Grant

Community Greenhouse in Inuvik

An NWT community initiative has been made the recipient of a grant thanks to the Tangerine 20 contest.


The Community Garden Society of Inuvik has been awarded 5000 dollars through Tangerine bank’s 20th anniversary contest, one of 5 out of nearly 400 applicants.


The money is expected to be used to enhance their youth programming, expand their compost program and update the building’s electricity and plumbing systems.


Recipients hope that this greenhouse will create youth job opportunities, reduce waste in town and help keep food affordable.


There are other projects reaping the benefits as well.
The RSYC Youth Group in Saskatchewan is receiving a generous $20,000 dollars.
Additionally, the Walkabout Farm Therapeutic Riding Academy in Ontario is getting $10,000 dollars in grant money.
Programs in Quebec and B.C landed lower stipends.
