Mapopo : Permaculture Workshop(25/3 ~ 20/5)

++ Mapopo : Permaculture Workshop ++ 25/3 ~ 20/5
Tutor: TV Yuen

Why Permaculture?

Why do we need Permaculture…
– to grow veggies & flowers on our rooftop?
– to grow a little veggie patch and a few pots of flowers in our backyard?
– to set up an organic farm?

– for social justice and sustainability in Hong Kong?
– if we wish our children to live well?

Because…
… rooftop is part of the nature
.…front yard and backyard interact with each other
.… farmers need to reduce costs and enhance productivity
.… another vision in planning is much needed for a sustainable Hong Kong.
… you will be giving them the best, understanding what is truly good for them.

About Permaculture:

‘Permaculture’ comes from the words ‘permanent’ and ‘agriculture’. ‘Agriculture’ means not only cultivation, but also humanity, ethics and traditional wisdom. It is a theory of design applicable everywhere from agriculture to town planning, commerce, education, career development and even the economy. We believe Permaculture is a solution to world’s crises.
Only when we can be self reliant on food and energy, we have options and freedom.

Permaculture – local examples:
SLOW Experience @ WanChai

‧1/F Bookshop + café (exhibition of locally grown food; retail business) <-> Rooftop: Composting (waste management; fertilizers production) + Farming (food production)
Mapopo Community Farm @ Fanling
‧Sustainable farming: Food waste/residue collected from urban neighbourhood -> Composting -> Local production of food -> Sale in local farmers market (community-based economy) -> Food supply to neighbourhood consumers cum food waste providers
