Welcome to the Inuvik Community Greenhouse!
We began our role as a community greenhouse in 1998 when volunteers transformed an old arena into a fully functioning greenhouse. This space is used by locals who pay a small fee and volunteer to garden here. In the summer, Inuvik gets 24 hour sunlight which means produce grows fast! On the second floor, we have a commercial space where we sell plants to cover operation costs.
We have over 170 beds in the greenhouse for members to use. However, community is the heart of the greenhouse and we also have dedicated plots for elders, group homes, children’s groups, the local food banks, and more.
Our operations are have currently changed due to Covid-19. This year we will not be renting plots but we have hired staff to manage gardening and we will be providing veggie box subscriptions to locals in town. We are currently working on our new chicken coop to provide locally sourced eggs and will be selling veggies from the greenhouse weekly at the Arctic Market.
