主辦:理大社會政策研究中心、中大公民社會研究中心、香港農業發展研究中心、    香港自然生態論壇、全港分區綠色生活地圖、香港有機生活發展基金

特區政府即將推出農業政策諮詢,在新界東北和三堆一爐等陰影下,鄉郊規劃早已面目全非,本土農業還有什麼前景可言?近年政府大力推動水耕種植,其背後的政治經濟理念為何?又能否滿足消費者對食物安全的期望?

讓我們集合各方關注香港農業命運的人,拉濶對本土農業的探討,共同打造香港生態城市的想像。

Local Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program

wknd

Do you want to know where and how exactly your vegetables and herbs are grown? What if you have a chance to touch the soil where your own food is grown and regularly talk to the farmer who tends to it? Would you want to have access to safer vegetables and herbs that have been offered to you regularly with less food miles and do your bit to help the world reduce carbon emission?

WKND, in partnership with our farmer friends and LOCOFAMA, is starting a local Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program. This CSA program is designed specifically to fit our busy and stressful HK lifestyle and to cater to both local and non local residents who enjoy healthy home-cooked meals. We are inviting those who are interested in this program to join us for a WKNDFAMA CSA Farms Open Day (limited spaces only so hurry up to register!) and to find out more about the organizers and the program itself!

When: Sunday, December 14, 2014

Time: from 11.30am through to 4pm at our partner farms in Yuen Long (exact address and meeting points will be provided after your sign up)

天台農場 – 農業的未來?

聯合國糧食及農業組織預計到了2050年將有超過90億人口,其中70% 將於城市居住。天台垂直溫室農場似乎是一個可信賴並可以提供穩定糧食供應予巨大的城市人口。

Just read a post at http://gardening.streamshare.com/. It was about a video report from CBS News on “whether rooftop farms will be the future of agriculture”.

It mentioned the “Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations forecasting urban areas to account for 70 percent of the world population in 2050 (over 9 billion)” and rooftop vertical greenhouses seem will become a reliable solution to provide stable food sources for all city slicker.
