CERES Nursery and Bookstore

CERES Nursery and Bookstore

One of Melbourne's leading nurseries, the CERES Nursery and Bookstore focuses on permaculture principles and encourages backyard food production. You can find us in the community park at CERES Brunswick East.

CERES Nursery and Bookstore provides expert and practical advice for plant-lovers. As a Permaculture nursery, our aim is to encourage backyard food production. We also sell a huge range of indoor plants, from monstera to fiddle leaf fig and everything in between.

Whether you have room for a food forest or simply a window box for herbs we supply a vast array of organic seedlings, fruit trees and plants to grow and enjoy in your garden, as well as providing the knowledge and support to do so.

Our Brunswick nursery is a place to relax, and take positive action towards creating a better world. Planting a beautiful, healthy and productive garden filled with food is one of the most creative and peaceful ways to sustain individual and planetary health.

Our Nursery is situated just across from the Merri cafe within the beautiful surroundings of our community park. Though if you’re not able to come in at this time, be sure to read up on our gardening resources and seasonal gardening advice

Found a gem in the neighbourhood! Small-ish menu, but quality food and beverages. Staff are super friendly and welcoming. Music was on point, and loved the chill, easy going ambience too. What more can you ask for?

Always get what I need and usually manage to learn a thing or two while I'm there, a great place to visit.

A very impressive collection of sustainable enterprises, cafes, markets, gardens and playgrounds and lots of shady spots to sit and soak it all in.Located along the Merri creek, and with parking just off Nicholson St (end of #96 tram line), there are many options to get to Ceres: bikes, walking, car, tram or bus.The cafe has fresh food, and coffees, plus refills for your the most sustainable of households.
