CERES School of Nature and Climate encompasses workshops, courses, school and global programs. Show your love for the Earth and check out their Spring Sessions as follows. There are a couple of repeat courses there; good news for those who might have missed out in the first round. Attendance prices vary and all need registering.

CERES is not just about courses. They also run an organic grocery store that's open from Monday to Sunday 9am to 5pm for food and essential products. COVID-19 safe practices are in place and you need to maintain safe social distancing. Card payments only are accepted.

If you're shopping online and want them delivered, shop organic groceries here and check here to see if you're in the delivery area. Orders $75 and over get free home delivery, otherwise the delivery fee is $6.95.


They now also offer pre-packed or personalised boxes online and you can put in your orders here. The Grocery Cafe is takeaway only and closes at 3.30pm.

You can also get your gardening supplies via the CERES Nursery online store. Seedlings, heirloom tomatoes, garden products, books, tools and accessories; you'll find it all there.

The next time you're allowed and able to head over to CERES, you can experience a new epic adventure playspace come to life right at the centre of their 4.5 hectare park. Over the next 2 years, a unique design concept will take place and the theme selected for the new design is soil - recycling at a microscopic level where wood, leaves, oxygen, water and minerals are mixed, ground-up, eaten and fermented. We all know soil fertility is vital for maintaining life on earth, but around the world is being lost at an alarming rate.


About those Spring courses - some of the events have Facebook event links and those that don't; you'll find full information of all the courses and what they're all about, on the registration page. Facebook events also lists October events at the Environment Park, but you'd need to check on them for updates first as they may or may not happen, dependent on government guidelines.
