We have a lot to thank the 8cm layer under our feet for. The rich skin of the Earth provides us with our food, and the health of the soil also determines the health of our food, animals and ourselves.In this workshop we will discover the wonderful world of the Soil Food Web and how important the interactions that exist in the depths under our feet are .Fall passionately in love with good soil as you work through the key soil properties and functions, followed by practical principles for repairing, building and maintaining your own bit of earth. You will never see the ground in the same way again.

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.
