Chris Ennis

Chris manages a group of interconnected social enterprises and training programs located at CERES, a 12 acre environmental education centre in the heart of Melbourne.

With projects ranging from mushroom growing to cheese making workshops; Chris’ Organic Farm team trains and feeds a local population with a growing passion to reconnect with their food.

The Farm employs a highly diverse staff in its training programs, farming, retail and distribution enterprises and uses a variety of creative methods to get enterprises off the ground and keep them going.

Chris is currently establishing the “CERES Food Hub” a portable, highly productive, food growing and delivery centre designed for cities with climate change and peak oil in mind. Chris also founded the Urban Orchard Food Swap that has now spread around Australia to over 20 locations. See CERES at www.ceres.org.au
