From sharing zucchini seeds over the fence with a neighbour to taking a cutting from a friend's thriving rosemary bush, propagating your own herbs and vegetables is easy, inexpensive and so very satisfying. Learn the basics of how to produce new plants from seed, cuttings and division in organic growing conditions in this hands-on workshop. Horticulturalist Therese Scales will take the class through seasonal timing for growth, heirloom and hybrid seeds, and propagation media using practical examples inside the CERES hothouses. Participants can take home any plants they have propagated on the day.
CERES members will receive a 10% discount by entering the discount code 'ceresmember' under the promotion and gifts code field.

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.
