Outdoor Event
HKU Earth Day 2019 x 1st Anniversary of Herb Garden
Date 日期:  17 Apr 2019
 
Time 時間: 1:00pm - 6:00pm
 
Venue 地點: HKU Herb Garden & Rooftop Farm
 
Summary 內容: The social upheaval in America in the 1960s has generated a series of movements standing up for civil rights, peace, gender equality and LGBT rights, as well as the environment. Earth Day was founded in 1970 to support environmental protection, yet after nearly half a century, you may still have doubts that how much progress has been actually made and the fight for a clean environment was even in an imminent urgency. We believe that through reconnecting with soil, with plants, with sun and rain, with nature and people around, we can once again remember that we are part of nature, and we must take care of our home, our family.
