CERES Environment Park visit

Here I visit CERES in Brunswick, Melbourne while on a mission for seeds and compost worms. www.ceres.org.au It's a great place with many aspects of sustainability on display. I was luck enough to chat to Matt about what happens in propagation and also Greg from the CERES Cafe. This video is produced by The Permaculture Research Institute Australia (PRI) For more information on Permaculture please visit www.permaculture.org.au ABOUT CERES (Taken from http CERES (the Centre for Education and Research in Environmental Strategies, pronounced series) is an internationally recognised model of a sustainable society located in Melbourne, Australia. CERES shares its name with the Roman Goddess for agriculture. CERES is located on 4.5 hectares (10 acres) on the banks of the Merri Creek, in East Brunswick, close to the centre of Melbourne. CERES runs on renewable energy, conserves and recycles its water and waste, grows organic food; and teaches diverse audiences about more just and environmentally friendly ways of living. What makes the CERES concept particularly compelling is that sustainability initiatives are located in a participatory social setting which, over time, has created a village-like environment, made up of a melting pot of different audiences.
