Description

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.

22 May 2019 • Vegan Cooking Italian Style

I absolutely loved the Vegan Cooking Italian class. It was such a fun experience and everyone was so lovely to work with- it really felt like you were cooking with family. Michelle was great in her explanation of how to do the dishes and she really made sure everyone had a real hands on experience and got involved straight away. The food was scrumptious and my non-vegan family loved the leftovers as well! Thank you Michelle for such a wonderful day! I can’t wait to try out the dishes at home for myself.

A delightful and gratifying workshop. Ilka was inspiring and provided a workshop with an environment for creativity.
