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.

Benedict was so informative and so helpful. The class was engaging, hands on and dense with information about the basics of beekeeping. He’s so knowledgeable, the class couldn’t have been better. Thank you!

Benedict’s course was excellent: full of relevant information, easy to follow, always open to questions, and we opened several hives. I now feel confident to open and inspect my hive and I know what to look for to manage my bee colony.
