Smudging is a sacred art of using dried plants and herbs to help purify and cleanse a space of negative energies. In this workshop we will look at a selection of plant materials appropriate for smudging, learn to smudge a space safely and bundling techniques to preserve the beauty of the plants. There will be some time dedicated for meditation as we craft and create our own unique smudge sticks.
Gemma Macri is a DIY creative and loves finding ways to incorporate herbs into her craft. She enjoys experimenting with herbal infusions, drying herbs for tea and collecting freshly scented pine to create smudge sticks that reflect the seasons

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.
