HKU Edible Spaces Ambassador Training Programme
港大可食空間大使培訓計劃
Since the setting up of the HKU Rooftop Farm in 2013 and the Herb Garden in 2018, the edible spaces on campus have been providing the opportunity and inspirations for students and staff to engage in organic farming, horticulture practices, as well as interdisciplinary studies. Throughout the years, the spaces act as a hub to promote awareness on sustainability and wellbeing among the HKU community.
To expand the benefits of the edible spaces to a wider audience, we have been recruiting HKU students, who are passionate about gardening/farming and sustainability, to be Edible Spaces Ambassadors to assist in hosting tours and workshops.
The 2nd Edible Spaces Ambassador Training Programme is now open for application. In the training programme, experts from respective areas will share their knowledge and experiences with the participants, and the participants will apply what they have learnt while designing and hosting the tours and workshops.

香港大學天台農莊及香草園分別在2013及2018年開始運作,為香港大學師生提供空間和機會參與有機耕種和園藝活動、並啟發了一些跨學科的研究項目。透過不同的活動,港大可食空間成為推廣可持續發展及身心健康的校園空間。為了進一步與大眾各界分享可食空間的好處和潛力,我們招募港大學生成為「可食空間大使」,協助港大可食空間籌辦公眾導賞團,學生大使既能親身實踐綠色生活,也能為可持續發展出力,推廣都市種植對社區身心靈的裨益。
第二屆「可食空間大使培訓計劃」現正接受報名,一系列工作坊將由各領域的專家擔任導師,學員參加工作坊後將設計導賞活動,並於活動中應用所學。
