CERES - Centre for Education and Research in Environmental Strategies, is an award winning, not-for-profit, sustainability centre located on 4.5 hectares on the Merri Creek in East Brunswick, Melbourne.

It is also a thriving community, an urban farm, Australia’s largest deliverer of environmental education, an event and conference venue and a place rich with social and cultural diversity. CERES is recognised as an international leader in community and environmental practice.

Built on a decommissioned rubbish tip that was once a bluestone quarry, today CERES is a vibrant eco-oasis. 350,000 people visit CERES each year. Many more engage with us through our Sustainable Schools program which takes sustainable education into schools across the state.

CERES’ green technology displays, buildings, education and training programs and social enterprises (CERES’ Organic Market, Café, Permaculture Nursery and Fair Food organics delivery) demonstrate food security, sustainable agriculture, energy efficiencies, renewables and water conservation in action.

CERES is a model for a future with sustainability, innovation and connectedness at its heart.

Come, be welcome, you never know what you will find on our rambling paths.

21 November 2017 • Sourdough Bread Baking with Ken Hercott

A fabulous day out. Ken was very knowledgeable, happy to share his expertise, helpful and entertaining. I’d thoroughly recommend this course, suitable for any level of experience with sourdough bread baking.


21 November 2017 • Kitchen Gardens for Schools and the Community

It was a wonderful informative class. I really liked how Carol adapted her material to suit the needs of the students. Would be keen to do some more courses at Ceres as a result. Only suggestion: a Jug of water for drinking, as it got really hot and we ran out of water during the class. Thanks


20 November 2017 • Sacred Smudge Sticks with Gemma Macri

I spent a delightful couple of hours being taught about smudge sticks,and indeed,making one of my own. The atmosphere at Ceres is such a positive one it creates an excellent learning environment. I have been motivated by the class to find out more for myself,surely a complement to the teacher! Thank you Ceres for your commitment to education if I can afford it I will return for other classes.
