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。以飲食為例,我們甚少追溯食物來源,也未必講究「不時不食」。這場疫症迫使我們重新思考日常生活模式,也令我們更注重健康飲食,開始關心糧食安全。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。

香港大學的天台農莊於2013年成立,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。農莊最近遷移至明華綜合大樓天台,此課程將於農莊實地進行,同學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 separated from nature that we often forget our inseparable bond with it. 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 reminded us to rethink our lifestyles and made us more aware of healthy eating and food security. 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. Participants can experience first-hand how gardening can improve our wellbeing.

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. The farm has recently relocated to the roof of Meng Wah Complex where this workshop will take place. Participants of this workshop can also join our farming team and to help with daily tasks in the farm.
