Several schools have spent time with us to learn about how to employ these building methods in their schools and parks. For example, The Downtown Alternative School (DAS) has applied to build a peace garden including planters and cob benches in Crombie Park.

As well, Cob in the park is partnering with Everdale Environmental Learning Centre to participate in Toronto Renewable Energy Co-opís Kidtricity Festival in the spring of 2008.

The Toronto Botanical Garden offers workshops and lectures in sustainable building methods and they own the first registered straw-bale structure in Toronto.
