When the hustle and bustle of the city gets to be a bit too much, its nice to escape to a place like CERES Community Environment Park. CERES (pronounced 'series') is an award not-for-profit sustainability centre located on 4.5 hectares on the Merri Creek in East Brunswick, Melbourne.
CERES 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.
As soon as you enter the doors of the park, a calm descends on you and you instantly forget about traffic jams and all the other things that sometimes can be annoying when living in a big city like Melbourne. The clucking of hens and buzzing of bees and people chatting is a welcome relief, and time seem to go at a different, more slower pace here. We love visiting the nursery and the organic market where you can buy some wonderful produce, or grab a quick bite to eat, while the kids play in the sandpit with some rustic toys that are available. If they are a bit too old for sandpit fun, there is a cool adventure playground in the park too. It's definitely worth the drive across the city and a wonderful place to recharge for the whole family on a weekend.
