CEG25 PicJoin us in the west end of the Ecology Garden to help us celebrate a major milestone – 25 years of evolution from a small patch by Hibernia Street to a large natural habitat that encompasses almost half an acre.

Our anniversary event will be opened by Town Crier Mandy Robinson and will feature a number of speakers.  They will be followed by recognition of the designer of the new Silver Garden and the winners of the 25th anniversary poetry contest reading their entries and receiving their prizes.

To wrap up the formal part of the event, Sister Linda Gregg will plant a tree that is being donated by Villa St. Joseph to commemorate the anniversary.  Guests will then be invited to stroll through the Garden and volunteers will be on hand to answer any questions.

Please note:  Covid contact tracing logs will be maintained and masks are recommended.


Have you seen the art banners hanging in the gazebo?  Clients of Community Living and Respite Services Northumberland carried out this project in celebration of the Garden’s 25th anniversary.

Art banners“We delivered burlap and paints to our clients and suggested they create messages with a nature theme,” says Wanda Tinney.  “When the burlap frays, birds can pull off threads to make their nests and the banners will eventally disappear.”

If you’re visiting the Garden, drop by the gazebo to admire the full art display.
