Sustainable Urban Farming Workshop
城市永續種植工作坊
人與大自然的關係密切,可惜城市人生活忙碌,一切但求方便快捷,例如甚少購買新鮮食材親自下廚,以致五穀不分,也就失去對四時變化的觸覺。但是這場突如其來的疫症逼使我們重新思考日常生活模式,也令我們更關注健康飲食。學習永續種植不但可以重建與自然的聯繫,更會了解我們的消費模式如何影響日常生活的碳足印。善用空間,城市人也能夠品嚐自己親手栽種的有機蔬菜。
香港大學天台農莊自2013年成立以來,為師生提供有機栽培課程及種植空間,讓大家在校園內享受種植的樂趣。這學期的課程將分為網上課堂及實習部分,參加者可於課堂後之自選時段在天台農莊實習,完成課程後亦可加入義工隊,參與農莊的日常運作。

We city people live so remote from nature that we forget our inseparable bond with nature. We live our hectic lives with too much focus on convenience, forgetting how our food is sourced and losing track of the seasons. However, this pandemic urges us to rethink our lifestyles and makes us more aware of healthy diets. Sustainable farming reconnects us and helps us learn from nature. It also reminds us of how our consumerist behaviour affects the environment. Creative use of urban space allows city people to enjoy the bliss of growing our own food and eating organic, fresh produce.

Established in 2013, the HKU Rooftop Farm provides organic farming workshops and farming space for staff and students to spread the joy of growing our own food. This programme includes online classes and hands-on practice. Participants may visit the rooftop farm at selected timeslots on weekdays to apply the skills learned and they can also join our farming team and to help with daily tasks in the farm.
