Honey Lane Hives

We have been “busy bees” creating a new education area at CERES Farm. Honey Lane Hives is home to a display hive, teaching area for workshops and excursions, and the CERES Bee Group.

We will be cutting a red ribbon and officially opening the space.There will be honey tasting, bee talks and bee dances! Come along, it will BEE great.

Bake and Bottle Competition

Where else can you put your cooking skills to good use and take part in an annual community cake bake-off? Cakes, biscuits and slices are eligible so you are invited to get creative and bake to impress our judges, the ladies of the CWA!

If you have a pantry full of homemade preserves, bring along your favourite jar and enter the Preserving category. We are thrilled to have Caroline from A Bit of Jam and Pickle as our guest judge.

Entry is $5. Bring your entry to the judging tent next to the CERES Market between 10am – 11am.

Judging will take place from 11am with winners announced at 12pm.

Urban Farmer Book Launch

Written by Justin Calverley and CERES, The Urban Farmer will show you how to create a productive garden in any space. It’s going to be our new bible in 2017!

Justin has been teaching the Complete Urban Farmer course for over six years and inspiring a new generation of backyard farmers. Come along and hear Justin talk about his new book and grab yourself a signed copy on the day.

Giant Vegetable Comp

Oh my gourd! The CERES Giant Vegetable Growing Competition has three categories:

1. longest bottle/snake gourd

2. biggest pumpkin (circumference)

3. most unusual shaped vegetable.

A $5.00 fee is required on the day to enter the competition. Come join us for gourd tastings, gourd music and workshops. Plus for the winners, there will be some great prizes available.
