Sustainable Urban Farming Workshop
Sustainable Urban Farming Workshop


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.
