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!
