Individual Impacts & Testimonials

20-year-old Nathan was referred to our Horticulture Pathways Support Program from his northern suburbs Community School. Nathan’s engagement with the school and learning activities had been sporadic, he suffered from depression and would rarely leave the house. Nathan and his mother came in for a chat with our Pathways Officer, Karen Mengell, about training and employment possibilities in horticulture and/or permaculture and was provided with subsidised places on the Sustainable Gardening and Complete Urban Farmer courses under trainer, Justin Calverley.

When Nathan commenced the course he was very quiet. As the courses went on he gradually participated more. As Justin would say “he blossomed“. As Nathan said in his written feedback he gained “a new perspective“.

When the courses finished in May, Nathan went on to voluntary horticulture/permaculture work at Marist 180 as well as applying for horticulture apprenticeships. At the beginning of September, Nathan came in to share the fabulous news that he had been offered and accepted a four-year apprenticeship in Certificate III Parks and Gardens working at a retirement village four days per week while attending TAFE one day per week. As several of the residents are interested in getting a veggie patch going and keeping a few chooks we can be sure that a little bit of CERES-inspired learning will be applied to his new position. A fantastic outcome for Nathan and CERES.

Shane joined us at the start of 2017. He was 20 years old, unemployed, no qualifications, and as he had struggled to finish school, he had drifted since.

Shane’s mum contacted us in desperation.

Shane commenced a Sustainable Gardening course in February 2017, followed by an Introduction to Landscaping course in May 2017, which he dropped out of. But he then returned and completed a Complete Urban Farmer course in July, 2017. In his words he gained “a fresh perspective on gardening and the natural world”.

In late 2017, he enrolled in the Diploma of Conservation & Land Management at Melbourne Polytechnic and commenced early 2018. Aside from his written evaluation “MAGIC!”, we know he’s still smitten with us because clearly he tells his mates about us, some of whom have also since engaged in the program.
