‘The day got us closer to nature, empowered us to create and introduced us to a community at the forefront of sustainable enterprise. CERES is a great volunteer activity, a good escape from daily routine and if you are around the area a highly recommended weekend excursion with the family.’

Financial contribution

Like many similar organisations, CERES requires a financial contribution to complement the volunteers’ efforts. We value the work corporate groups do for CERES but must provide resources administrative support, occupational health and safety training, supervision and preparation for the days to run smoothly.

Workplace Giving

Many companies have a matching gift program to support employee giving. Donations come from pre–tax salary.
