Cobourg Beach Society Walks the Walk

Ashley MacIsaac to live in Cobourg

Ashley MacIsaac, Canada's wildest fiddler, announced that he will be moving from Windsor to the Feel Good town of Cobourg. A recent CBC interview revealed that the Cape Bretoner is moving to Cobourg to be near his true love.

Feel good?

Stuart Ross, a Canadian literary legend of small press and peculiar poetry that will take your breath away with its audacious premises, moved to Cobourg a couple years earlier, also for love.

Hot spot.
Feel good.

Garden Safety Workshop at Cobourg Ecology Garden

Spring unfolds from the softened ground. Likewise, gardeners unfold from winter restrictions to head outdoors to create their gardens afresh. This is the season when gardening safety should take precedence to ensure an injury-free growing season.  

The Cobourg Ecology Garden is hosting a workshop on safe gardening techniques by a professional physiotherapist from We-Fix-U, which recently won Best Wellness Centre in Northumberland, as well as best Physiotherapy and Foot Health Staff for ten years running.

Learn the recommendations of the Canadian Physiotherapy Associations (CPA) tips and techniques to get the most out of the gardening season. Gardening can cause muscle strain to the lower back, shoulders, knees and arms, especially after a sedentary winter.

The workshop begins at 11 am Saturday, May 26, at the Cobourg Ecology Garden at the foot of Hibernia Street. The workshop will include a warm-up demonstration, followed by CPA recommendations for safe and healthy raking or hoeing, weeding or planting, digging or shovelling, lifting or carrying, pruning or trimming, and everything else in between. There are also easy methods to modify garden tools to accommodate our various abilities.

Learn how to enjoy an injury-free gardening season at this Garden Safety Workshop.

The Cobourg Ecology Garden is also holding its annual spring plant and yard sale the same Saturday morning beginning at 10am. This is the main funding event for the Garden. All Northumberland gardeners are invited to support gardening organically, without the use of chemicals or other artificial means. This year will feature birdhouses made at the Brookside Youth Centre.

The Cobourg Ecology Garden will also be honoured with a brief pit stop of solidarity by the Bike For the Planet riders circa 10:15am. Come and applaud clean green transportation energized by the human body.
