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.

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

Great session offering the theoretical and the practical. The following day I arrived at my work as the sustainability and kitchen garden teacher in a primary school having had my prior knowledge and practice confirmed and or tweaked, and a set of hand outs and class taken notes to further my working knowledge. Currently developing a school orchard so proceeding with confidence!

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