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.

17 July 2019 • Pruning & Care of Fruit Trees with Therese Scales

I enjoyed the workshop, and learned a lot especially with the practical application of pruning some actual trees.

12 July 2019 • Blue Cheese Making with Cheeselinks

The blue brie cheese making workshop was an entertaining and comprehensive session, expertly run by Charlene and her very capable assistant. The course notes are valuable but, most of all, Charlene's explanations and knowledge contributed to a most worthwhile day. Looking forward to tasting the cheese! Highly recommend the workshop!
