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.

Carol was a very passionate and informed teacher and she was great at covering a broad range of information so that the beginners and the people with experience all learnt something new and interesting. I feel confident now to go and try my hand at gardening. Ceres was also a beautiful setting to learn in.

Great course and really informative in easy to understand language. Reignited my love for gardening and explained some rookie errors. Interesting for a wide audience, including those with gardening experience. Carol was engaging and a great teacher.
