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.

20 February 2018 • Natural Cosmetics with Taj Scicluna

Taj was an excellent teacher and provided all the ingredients. It was an excellent course where I learned alot, however, the facilities could have been better, there was a lack of measuring spoons in the kitchen and some of my items did not turn out right.

20 February 2018 • Soap Making for Beginners with Irene Davic

Excellent session, all equipment and supplies top notch, Irene was excellent and has provided ongoing support and interest, however, a significant part of the training was supposed to be how to use the soap calculator but the computers were not up and running. Also we all received different information via email prior to the course about what were were to bring and what was to be provided. I think the instructor was excellent but the facilities were a bit lacking.

19 February 2018 • Braided Rag Rugs with Ilka White

This was a well-presented, informative workshop where Ilka introduced us to a wide variety of rag rug braiding techniques. And it's so satisfying to make something beautiful out of worn-out old clothes and linens!
