About CERES Fair Wood
CERES Fair Wood is based on the success of CERES Fair Food, a project which connects over 100 organic food producers with Melbourne customers. Inspired by timber sourcing standards created for Melbourne’s Mullum Creek Development – CERES Fair Wood seeks to bridge the gap that exists between socially and environmentally conscious timber consumers and small Australian farm foresters and sawmillers.
CERES Fair Wood is a social enterprise, certified by Social Traders. We are led by a social and environmental mission:
To educate the Australian community on sourcing ecologically sustainable and ethically sourced timber.
To connect Australian farm foresters and sawmillers with socially and environmentally conscious consumers through a robust and transparent brand.
CERES – Centre for Education and Research in Environmental Strategies, is an award winning, not-for-profit, sustainability centre.
CERES is a place for community-based learning and action to create environmentally beneficial, socially just, economically satisfying, culturally enriching and spiritually nurturing ways of living together.
CERES Environment Park is built on a 10 acre, decommissioned municipal tip on the banks of the Merri Creek, in East Brunswick, Melbourne. CERES was built on the passion and commitment of the local community. It is recognised as an international leader in community and environmental practice and conserves and recycles its water and waste and has an extensive renewable energy program. Each year over 470,000 people connect with CERES either through visiting the park or through our off-site education programs.
CERES Fair Wood is one of many social enterprises to come out of CERES.
