HK Farm is a relatively new farm in the amazingly dense city of Hong Kong. The farm, founded in March 2012, aims to communicate the value of rooftop farming and the benefits of locally produced food. Besides being a farm, the artistic organization behind HK Farm focuses on designing products and offering urban farming-related services in the city of Hong Kong.
While in the rest of the world farms are led by farmers, HK Farm is the first farm in the world with a creative director. Michael Leung is the founder and creative director of HK Farm. He also runs HK Honey and co-founded a community-oriented art and design platform called Shanghai Street Studios in Yau Ma Tei. Leung’s interest in agriculture started abroad when he visited other rooftop farms like the world’s largest rooftop farm, Brooklyn Grange. HK Farm is limited in size and won’t produce much food over the year, but we must admit that the farm looks very stylish, thanks to its creative director.
