Two men who’s vision, dedication and enormous-heartedness guided CERES from a tip site into Australia’s most visited environmental centre have been recognised in today’s Queen’s Birthday Honours List.  Eric, who recently died, and Noel, who recently retired, were both with CERES from the beginning.  With great dedication and very dry humour they gave themselves to transforming a dump into an urban oasis and their students into caring, conscious citizens.  Congratulations and thank you for what you have given to our community.
