CERES is a place to fall in love with the earth again. This former landfill tip is now an award winning sustainability education centre, organic farm, community hub & centre of social enterprise in Victoria. Your team is invited for one-off or consecutive volunteer days! CERES can host groups of 7 – 150 in Brunswick East or Coburg.
Kick off the day with an exclusive site tour to welcome your team to CERES including the organic farm, nursery, cafe, chickens, community gardens and the beautiful Merri Creek, before dusting off your boots for volunteering.
CERES volunteer activities can include gardening, weeding, painting, landscaping, composting and masonry across the 4 acre site (or Joes Garden). Wet weather options are also available if required on the day.
The main site in Brunswick East activities include gardening, weeding, painting, landscaping, composting and stone masonry across the 4 hectare park.

The offsite location, Joe’s Market Garden, located on the lovely Merri Creek offers corporate volunteering bookings most days of the week. Joes Garden is a beautiful, historic market garden, located on the banks of the Merri Creek in Coburg cared for by CERES. Activities are all farm-based – including planting, watering, weeding, harvesting.

You may even pick up some gardening or handy-person tips! The financial contribution is a cost per head, covering CERES running costs- paying your facilitator, OH&S, training, co-ordination of your booking and ongoing strategic development of our volunteering programs.
