Description

For Italians summer means taking sweet ripe tomatoes and turning them into the years supply of Passata. Join Monique in this hands-on group passata making experience in the lead up to CERES Fair Food’s Crowdsaucing Day. Monique will show you how to make your very own sauce just how Italians do it at home every summer, creating a production line of tasks for everyone to join in on. You will be using both manual machines and also a ‘no machine’ method of preserving tomatoes.

Although we will not be water-bathing (preserving) the fresh passata on the day, you will go home with instructions on how to water-bath your own passata. All you need at home is a large saucepan. You should expect to take home approximately 8 jars of passata.

CERES

Vendor sincce 2013

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.
