Spring is starting to poke its way out, and that means communities around the north will be making preparations for gardens and greenhouses.
One such community project will be returning to Inuvik, and takes its first steps into the growing season today.
The first Inuvik Greenhouse Info Session will be tonight from 7-9 in the Centennial Library Meeting Room, with the next one taking place Sunday April 8th.
The greenhouse program is hoping to grow in more ways than one this year as they’ve joined Community Food Centre Canada’s “Good Food Organizations” for the 20th year of operation.
Good Food Organizations helps existing community food projects by increasing their capacity to provide healthy, homegrown food through funding, training and networking with other community projects.
By joining the initiative, the Inuvik Community Greenhouse is the most northern member of Good Food Organizations by a wide margin.
The greenhouse is also looking to fill a coordinator job and, funding permitting, three intern positions.
