Compost at the greenhouse

This year the greenhouse has a new project: It is collecting waste produce from all three grocery stores and making compost.

Here are the separators at the back of the greenhouse.

Texas Air National Guard at the community greenhouse!

The Inuvik Community greenhouse recently got some help all the way from Houston, Texas.

The Texas Air National Guard was in town last week, as part of an exchange with Canadian forces. (They are military engineers and were working on a nearby airbase, installing buildings. Later a Canadian group will travel to the states. This is all related to Arctic Sovereigny and the promotion of exchange and cooperation between the two nations.)

The national guard offered to volunteer at the Greenhouse. Last Saturday 10 people wearing US-issue camouflage, backpacks and boots moved gravel and helped build new walkways.
