CERES IN EAST BRUSNWICK

CERES Environment Park is an award winning, not-for-profit, environment and education centre and urban farm located by the Merri Creek in Brunswick East, Melbourne. The purpose of CERES is to provide a place which exists to initiate and support environmental sustainability and social equity with an emphasis on cultural richness and community participation.

CERES sits on a 13 acre plot of land that was once a municipal tip. Today it is a thriving community environment park which is unique in Australia and attracts 350,000 visitors each year. CERES has an Organic Market & Shop, Permaculture and Bushfood Nursery, Café, market gardens, chickens and renewable energy displays. CERES also hosts many school excursions, events, festivals and workshops and offers organised tours. CERES is open everyday during daylight hours and entry is free.

An added bonus in CERES is the creativity of the people involved in it, which is evidence by the many artworks, murals, mosaics, sculptures and installations that are scattered throughout the plot.
