We partnered with Sceneway Garden Estate Committee and ELCHK and organized a series of rooftop farming workshops for our staff and tenants. We invited senior farmers from Kwu Tung to help set up our rooftop farms at Prosperity Place and share the secrets behind good cultivation.
Besides teaching us their planting techniques, the elders led several urban farming workshops for our tenants and residents of Sceneway Garden Estate. They introduced different plant species and shared how they could make full use of different crops, such as making herbal tea, using them as cooking spices, and making skincare products.
By inviting seniors to become our community tutors, the program provided them with the chance to sustain their passion for farming, improve their self-esteem, keep in touch with society and increase knowledge for developing their new skill sets.
