內容:
中環發現『麥田圈』
『中環種夏野』綠色夏日嘉年華,是首個位於香港核心地段、以結合永續生活概念與大型都市耕作示範為主題的非牟利社區活動,與大眾攜手為香港栽種綠色的未來。活動舉行期間中環將會出現大型『麥田圈』,更有本地農作物種植示範。『中環種夏野』 將一連八週舉辦不同主題的免費工作坊及專題講座,以及一系列環繞創意、文化、藝術、電影、音樂、舞蹈、手作、市集、綠色生活、樂活趣味等公眾活動,免費入場。

文化娛樂 互動體驗
『中環種夏野』於坐擁維港美景的『中環海濱活動空間』舉行,由CVM主辦及策劃,The Organic Farm豐之谷有機農莊協辦。由8月16日至10月5日期間舉行為期八星期的活動,從環保、健康、藝術、音樂、舞蹈、電影、動物及親子八大方向建構整體活動。大會召集本土環保及文化團體、創作人及擁相同理念的人士,為他們提供一個自由空間,以綠色生活為題,策劃多元化的文化娛樂及互動體驗,推廣及建設綠色社區。大會更提供導賞員介紹有機城市耕作及即場教授種植方法,讓大眾親身體驗耕種的樂趣。

城市耕作 天然樂活
住在城市的高樓大廈中,人與土地的關係越來越疏離。我們的食材都要從老遠的農村運到城裏來,在生產、包裝及運輸的過程中製造不少污染及浪費。其實在城市有限的土地裏,例如荒地、公園、天台、露台、以至窗台,都可以設置小農圃,只需要泥土、陽光、水份,便可種出新鮮健康味美的蔬菜,自耕自足。近年世界各地不少人返樸歸真,出現半農半X的新生活模式,成為醒覺一族的新思潮。『中環種夏野』期望為香港市民帶來城市耕作、天然樂活的清新生活選擇。

Crop Circles – First Time in Central!

Green Summer Festival is a cooperation of community events brought together for the first time on the Central Harbourfront Event Space within the bustling Central Business District.

Open to the public free of charge Green Summer Festival will feature more than 20 events and workshops that members of the public can participate in, combining arts, culture, sustainable living and urban farming concepts and activities to encourage the local community to join hands and adopt a greener lifestyle for a greener Hong Kong. Commencing on August 16 and spanning eight weekends through to October 5, Green Summer Festival will kick off with huge crop circles, designed for urban farming demonstrations and providing the public with their own little urban plot for the duration of the Festival. Other events include flea market, film night, talks and workshops, art festival, music events and more. Come join us and make this summer a Green one!

An Interactive, Entertaining Experience
Presented and organised by Central Venue Management, co-organised by The Organic Farm, Green Summer Festival will be held at the Central Habourfront Event Space overlooking the beautiful skyline of Victoria Harbour. Programme content has been developed around 8 themes, namely green, health, art, music, dance, film, animals and family. Collaborating with various local groups, organisations, creative talents and individuals who share the same vision and passion, Central Venue Management provides a unique and exceptional venue within which collaborative partners can create interactive experiences and host a variety of entertainment addressing the importance of building a green society for all of us. “Farming Guides” will be on hand for the duration of the Green Summer Festival to brief visitors on urban organic farming and teach them various farming techniques. Participants will enjoy real farming fun!

Urban Farming, Joys of Natural Living
Living a fast-paced city life surrounded by numerous skyscrapers, humans have become increasingly detached from Mother Earth. Most of the food needed by urbanites is transported from faraway villages, often in distant countries, across continents. The food manufacturing, packaging and transportation processes all lead to pollution and waste. In recent years many people around the globe have started to adopt a simpler and back-to-basics lifestyle, utilizing what’s available in their surroundings such as abandoned land, parks, rooftops, balconies and even windowsills to create their own growing plots. Soil, sunlight and water are all that it takes to grow fresh, delicious vegetables for a healthy diet. A new way of living, dubbed “Half-Farmer-Half-X” has emerged as more individuals awaken to a whole new level of consciousness. Here in Hong Kong the Green Summer Festival will introduce urban farming and the joys of natural living to the local community to encourage this healthier and more sustainable lifestyle. Come see how each of us can be a bit more GREEN!
