What is CERES Environment Park?
CERES (pronounced ‘series’) stands for Centre for Education and Research in Environmental Strategies. CERES Environment Park is built on a 10 acre, decommissioned municipal tip on the banks of the Merri Creek, in East Brunswick, Melbourne. This not-for-profit community organisations runs extensive environmental education programs, organic farms and community gardens, a market, eco shop, café, restaurant, catering service, community kitchen, as well as a permaculture and bushfood nursery. CERES conserves and recycles its water and waste and has an extensive renewable energy program.
CERES was built on the passion and commitment of the local community. It is recognised as an international leader in community and environmental practice and has won many awards including the United Nations Australia World Environment Day Award in 2009.
Each year over 470,000 people connect with CERES either through visiting the park or through our off-site education programs.
All profits generated by CERES Fair Food contribute to running the activities and operations of our parent organisation, CERES Community Environment Park.
