Fermented foods are high in vitamins, enzymes, are probiotic, and very healthy for you! Email firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up.
This month we decided to host a trivia night at the greenhouse, as well as beer yoga. We had about 50 people come out for a “Night out at the Greenhouse” eager to spend their Saturday night surrounded by vegetable, fruit, flower plants, and friends. As a community greenhouse, we offer a space and programming for gardening, but we also are also fortunate to be able to offer a venue for community events, including our own fundraisers like trivia and yoga.
Kim Herle, one of our regular yoga instructors, decided to offer a beer yoga event, where each participant was given two drinks throughout the hour-long yoga session. Somehow the class ended in a sing-along, with one participant playing the ukulele while everyone else sang their hearts out. For those who weren’t ready for their night at the greenhouse to end, we had a trivia night downstairs, where teams of 4-5 tested their general and local knowledge. We had the help of some local groups to include a round on local trivia, with questions from Children’s First Society, Inuvialuit Communication Society, Environment and Natural Resources, Inuvialuit Regional Corporation, Aurora Research Institute, and more. As the sun finally began to set around midnight, the greenhouse cleared out with people encouraging us to host more “nights out at the greenhouse”.
On Saturday, August 12th we’re hosting a trivia night at the greenhouse! Come with a team of 1-5 people and test both your general and local knowledge. There will be a cash prize for the winning team, door prizes, a cash bar, and a BBQ dinner available for purchase. Trivia starts at 8pm and this is only open for folks aged 19+
Entry is $5 in advance or $10 at the door and includes snacks and a chance to be the trivia victor! Bonus: if you go to beer yoga from 7-8pm you get free entry into trivia. Tickets for both events are now available for sale at the greenhouse from 9am-6:30pm.
The BBQ dinner available for purchase will be BBQ chicken pesto, roasted potatoes, and a green salad. There will be a vegetarian option of a roasted veggie pesto pasta. Yum!
More details are available on the Facebook event page.
