Sustainable Urban Farming Workshop – Spring and Early Summer

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.
題目包括 Topics include:

Preparation of base fertiliser, introduction of seasonal crops, transplanting and watering skills

Preparation of seed starting mix, introduction of seedling and fertilisation skills

Management of crops (e.g. pruning, building trellis) and pest control
