We work with communities across Canada that are invested in increasing local food security. Currently, our Growing Domes® can be found in Nunavut, Quebec, Ontario, British Colombia and Newfoundland and Labrador.
We are seeking your support to build a future that is fresh, sustainable, and empowering for remote communities across the nation. By donating to this fundraising campaign, you are helping raise funds that go directly to community-led greenhouse projects that tackle food insecurity.
From November 28th to December 2nd, your donation will be DOUBLED & you will receive a GIFT back!
What’s the Tomorrow’s Harvest Fund all about?
100% of the Tomorrow’s Harvest Fund is gifted to remote communities across the territory, enabling them to build and implement their very own greenhouse infrastructure.
These funds allow each community to choose their food facility, what crops to grow, when and how to grow these crops, and more – all to feed and engage with their community. Depending on the unique food sovereignty goals of the community, the projects supported include anything from outdoor garden beds and hoop houses, to greenhouse domes and self contained hydroponic units.
In addition to these spaces enabling locals to grow fresh food together, they offer a space to gather, host classrooms, heal together and more. The greenhouse infrastructure is complemented with education materials and training, leading to multiple generations engaging with the project for time to come.
To give communities the opportunity to launch their very own food sovereignty project, we need your support. By donating to this fundraiser, you are helping put food systems back in the hands of the people.
To double the impact of your donation…
Donate within the fundraising period, taking place November 28th to December 2nd. During this time, donations will be matched by The Malcolm J. Jenkins Family Foundation. So, if you donate $20, that’s $40 going to a community’s project!

“We think food insecurity is one of the most important issues Canada will face in the next 10 years. Tackling food insecurity requires innovative solutions that can be carried out at a local level, which is why we want to support the work that Green Iglu is doing. It is these community-led initiatives where a lot of change can be mobilized.” – Marina de Pina-Jenkins

Our first harvest in April brought in 100lbs
of potatoes from last season, and kale and lettuce planted early this season, making over 80 meals. We’re excited to see what the rest of the season brings.”
The Fund was motivated by the unreasonably high produce prices in remote communities in Canada, due to the long distance produce must travel. For people living in the North and remote communities, fresh foods cost at least 3x more. And it’s expected that prices may continue to increase because of the extended effects of the COVID-19 pandemic from labour shortages, fuel usage to fly into remote communities, and disruptions in the food supply chain.
This is called food insecurity: barriers to accessing nutritious and affordable food. Tomorrow’s Harvest Fund helps communities shorten the distance of the food from the production site to a person's plate, through the installation of local growing infrastructure.
We are a charitable organization driven to provide the tools required to improve community wellness and tackle the challenges of food security. Green Iglu partners with communities to support the implementation of growing infrastructure that suits community needs, hands-on gardening, educational programming for schools, and training that embraces culture. The projects range from being a place of gathering and healing to producing fresh healthy food for the wider community, while providing a basis for training and employment.
