Volunteer at CERES
Volunteer at CERES
Across the organisation we also have approximately 400 people providing their time and expertise as volunteers. Volunteers contribute to the key CERES enterprises such as Honey Lane and Harding Street Market Gardens, CERES site maintenance crews and behind the scenes through admin work.
The CERES seed propogation program is also a popular hub for volunteers and the fruits of volunteers labour can be seen all over the site as well as in the Market Gardens and at our Permaculture and Bushfood nursery. Many people decide to commit a regular amount of time to CERES such as a day or half day a week. For others they will be inspired by a particular project such as our Harvest Festival and volunteer only for the life of the project.
Check out our volunteers page for more info on how to get involved.
Whichever way you find your way to the CERES community be it through employment or volunteering your contribution is greatly appreciated.
