New Greenhouse for Canoe Island French Camp

Canoe Island French Camp is celebrating the erection of a greenhouse to complement their recently established garden. This project was made possible thanks to generous donations from community members as well as support from the San Juan Island Community Foundation.

The frame for the structure was constructed entirely with wood milled on Canoe Island from cedar trees they felled and dried on site. From start to finish, this project was a successful exercise in sustainability and a manifestation of CIFC’s desire to build environmentally responsible structures. The camp is very proud of this greenhouse and especially proud that support from the community made it a reality.

“Despite the tough circumstances that CIFC faced this year, our organization has found joy and strength this summer in using our resources like our talented staff to improve our organization and dream big for the coming year. This summer has been a period of reflection and growth and these past six months have heightened our enthusiasm for our mission of education and service.”
