Description

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.

We are a not-for-loss community business. We run extensive environmental education programs, urban agriculture projects, green technology demonstrations and a number of social enterprises including a market, grocery, café, community kitchen, organic online supermarket and a permaculture and bushfood nursery.

CERES (pronounced ‘series’) is a place where people come together to share ideas about living well together, and directly participate in meeting their social and material needs in a sustainable way. Through social enterprises, education and training, employment and community engagement, CERES provides the means by which people can build awareness of current local and global issues, and join in the movement for economic, social and environmental sustainability.

For thousands of years the Wurundjeri people lived on the land where CERES now stands. The Merri Creek was a focus of their lifestyle, a place to swim and play and a vital source of food. Following the European invasion, the Victorian gold rush and the growth of Melbourne city, the site was quarried for bluestone then turned into a landfill site… As industry moved in the water became polluted and the trees and wildlife disappeared.

06 July 2018 • Intro to Horticultural Therapy

A refreshing perspective on the art of healing. We all know that Nature is our best physician and this short course will prove that to you.

12 June 2018 • Complete Urban Farmer Course

The complete urban Pharma course was informative, accessible to every level, socially cohesive and nurturing, a great length and depth. I look forward to the next course which is the advanced.

07 May 2018 • Environmental Education Course - Professional...

Doing a PD at CERES was one of the coolest and inspiring places to learn. The entire facility is the most well thought out for the environment and it really connects you to things that the environment offer us for free that we take for granted or don't utilise in our every day lives. The design was very inspiring and has had me thinking about my own home since! Thanks for doing what you do!
