Corporate Volunteering

Bring your team and spend the day with CERES. Our Corporate Volunteering program offers farm and garden experiences to help strengthen the bond within your team, create shared enthusiasm, and deepen your connection to the Earth.

Groups will get involved in practical activities, and learn from CERES staff as well as each other. Come along for a one-off experience, or consecutive days. We host groups with a minimum of 10 people, and up to 40, at our Brunswick East Park or Joe’s Market Garden in Coburg.
