Event Description

To celebrate International Permaculture Day we are organising a community working bee in our Food Forest. Our Food Forest is home to our chooks and four rotational runs, terraces with fruit and nut trees and the newly built Honey Lane Hives bee display and teaching space. We would like to prep the area and plant some new trees to increase the number of productive plants and to create more shade options for our chooks.

So come and get your hands dirty, help us plant over 500 plants and seedlings and learn more about the fundamentals of a working Food Forest.

Our Site Horticulturalist Belinda Kennedy and Organic Farm Manager Meg Stewart will be leading the day’s activities and share their knowledge about working on an organic farm and at CERES.

About the Organisers

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.
