CERES Envrionment Park – video

Ceres Environment Park – Melbourne Victoria

This is a video about the sustainable not-for-profit agribusiness operated by the Centre for Education and Research in Environmental Strategies (CERES) in inner Melbourne. CERES Environment Park runs an organic farm, fruit and vegetable delivery business, and delivers educational programs to schools. Presented by the CERES managers, the video includes footage of the farm, organic shop, and team members and gives an overall picture of the environmental park and its social enterprise programs, focusing on the growth of the delivery business and the aims of the education program. The video also describes the importance of the centre's organic farm, the advantages of organic farming for health and the environment, and how CERES has helped students and teachers embed environmental education in the curriculum and include a fruit and vegetable garden as a normal part of school life. The video runs for 2:17min and ends with six discussion points for students.
