Sustainable Urban Farming Workshop – Spring and Early Summer
城市永續種植工作坊——春天至初夏
 
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」。這場疫症逼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。上學期,我們邀請了嘉道理農場的專業導師帶領同學在明華綜合大樓天台農圃種植秋冬作物,這次延續我們的種植計劃,學習春夏作物的栽種要點。此課程將於農圃實地進行,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 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 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.
 
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. Last semester, under the guidance of the professional instructors from Kadoorie Farm and Botanic Garden, students have learned to plant some autumn/winter crops in the rooftop farm at Meng Wah Complex. To continue with our year-round planting, we will learn to grow some spring/summer crops this semester. Participants of this workshop can also join our farming team and to help with daily tasks in the farm.
