For many cultures, the end of summer means taking sweet ripe  tomatoes and turning them into the years supply of Passata. Join Monique  in this hands-on group passata making experience. Monique will show you  how to make your very own sauce by creating a production line of tasks  for everyone to join in on. You will be using both manual machines and  also a ‘no machine’ method of preserving tomatoes.

Although we will not be water-bathing (preserving) the fresh  passata on the day, you will go home with instructions on how to  water-bath your own passata. All you need at home is a large saucepan.  You should expect to take home approximately 6 jars of passata.

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.
