Please be aware that incorrect GPS co-ordinates were provided for a hunt and there is no geocache in the Ecology Garden.  We ask that hunters do not try to enter the sheds or dig in the Garden.  Instead, we welcome you to walk the paths to enjoy the colors, the fragrances and the cheerful chirping of birds.



Please bring a chair and join us at the Ecology Garden on Sunday, September 16th, 2:00 – 4:00 p.m., to enjoy family-friendly stories about a fairy godmother and her donkey friends!

Donations to help feed the Primrose Donkey Sanctuary critters are gratefully accepted. 


The Garden was a hotbed of activity on United Way’s Day of Caring!  Nine enthusiastic volunteers worked tirelessly for five hours alongside CEG members.  Thanks to everyone’s efforts:

  • A ramp was built at the entry to the shed, making it fully accessbile
  • Posts for upcoming signage were placed in two garden beds
  • A new composter was built and, to the applause of all, christened with its first bucket of compostable material
  • The badly overgrown area behind the western Ecology Garden sign was cleared and prepped for future planting
  • The south side of the Garden received an overall “fluff and tidy”

Many thanks to our Day of Caring volunteers – Rob Franklin, Brian Darling, Lillian Darling, Kyle Snyder, Reid McCrae, Sean O’Grady, Teigan Jarvis, Gavin McNamara and Gord Hanson – for making these projects a reality.


The Ecology Garden is in its 22nd year of proving a peaceful oasis where all can enjoy the sights and sounds of nature.  Having reached maturity, the older sections of the Garden are the focus of tender loving care this year.

On Thursday, May 24th, a group of 40 supporters gathered in the Garden to celebrate the generous spirit of current and former Cobourg residents.  J. McGill, the Peters family, L. Skyvington and J. Dansie sponsored the purchase and planting of five new trees to enhance the Garden's woodland area.  Our feathered friends thoroughly approve.  Shortly after planting, our new American Beech became the home of a bird's nest and we eagerly await the cheeping of hungry nestlings.
