This Earth Day, we're encouraging everyone to start their journey in growing their own food by joining the Earth Day Growing Weekend with Rooftop Republic and Feeding Hong Kong!
Held at the beautiful edible landscape at Metroplaza Organic Rooftop Farm, you will have an opportunity to experience an edible oasis in the middle of the city, learn more about the crops that are in season, and understand more about how each of us as consumers can combat the growing problem of food waste. To wrap up the session, you will also enjoy hands-on experience in growing microgreens - young vegetable greens that fall between sprouts and baby leaf vegetables and can contain up to 40 times higher levels of vital nutrients than mature vegetables!
Enjoy a morning of learning, fun, and hands-on experience of sustainable farming in the city. You'll walk away from this workshop with new skills and take home a Microgreens Kit to continue growing your own food journey at home!
今個地球日，雲耕一族和樂餉社攜手為您帶來了一個關於「自己食物自己種」的精彩工作 坊！你將可親臨新都會廣場有機都市農莊，由農夫親自落場分享有機耕種、不時不吃的概 念，並講解我們每個消費者如何解決日益嚴重的食物浪費問題。
除此之外，大家還可以即席體驗迷你菜種植、感受親自種、親自食的好處！外觀看似很迷你 的蔬菜，其實是介於芽菜和嫩葉蔬菜之間的年輕蔬菜，其營養價值比一般成年蔬菜要高出40 倍之多！體驗完畢後，參加者更會獲得「迷你菜盆栽套裝」，落手落腳在家中種植迷你菜， 寓教育於生活樂趣，實踐自己食物自己種！
