Way back in February, Leigh Blackall wrote about his journey to Melbourne, and to Ceres Environmental Park. He raved about the luxury of having such a wonderful site so close to the city – and recorded a couple of interviews with the locals there.
Yes Leigh, we’re lucky here in Melbourne. i’m really lucky, i can go visit Ceres any time i like, and often buy my organic vegies there. They also have a second-hand market on a Saturday morning, and let me tell you i’ve found some real bargains.
However, people in a Reservoir Adult Literacy group haven’t always heard of the place. So it was one of the suggested destinations for an excursion earlier in the year.
They all said it was “different” .. not the sort of place they’re used to visiting. It was an adventure across cultural lines, but mostly these people enjoyed the place.
Another weekend i dropped by for my vegies, and was astonished to see Melbourne radio station 3AW in their mobile broadcasting caravan – for the launch of a new home ecology site, and composting week.
Ecology has really hit the mainstream when 3AW visits Ceres!!
(.. and yes, Leigh the ceres website although attractive and functional, has no blogging interactivity.)
