環保基金「梅窩 Farm to Table 農業社區」計劃 細味梅窩 由農田到餐桌 梅窩農業社區導賞及農地生態初探工作坊(冬季)   梅窩都有農田?來梅窩旅行的朋友總會見到碼頭附近擺攤的老農,鋪上香蕉、木瓜、蕃薯、西洋菜等等。除了傳統農夫,梅窩更有一些用有機或永續農法耕作的農夫,你有沒有走入他們的田看過?由農田到餐桌,在梅窩不過咫尺。From farm to table,在地食材滿足的不只是口腹之慾,而是對土地、生活與自然環境的了解。 Farm to Table(農地到餐桌)是近年流行與農業關係密切的食物倡議,餐廳和居民直接採用本地農田的農作物做菜,支持本地農業,減少遠程運輸造成的碳排放。食客更可直接向農夫了解農作物的情況,提高資訊透明度,確保食物安全。 工作坊會由農業社區大使帶領參觀農田,了解梅窩農田生態,以及本地農業的文化和歷史。參加者需要化身小小公民科學家,協助紀錄農田、荒廢農地、林地等自然生境內的生態情況。參觀後我們會一同到餐廳品嘗梅窩本地菜的味道。 日期:10/2/2019 時間:下午2時至7時 行程:參觀兩個梅窩農田、沿路生態及農田導賞、拍攝農田生態的工作坊(約3.5小時)、梅窩餐廳享用本地菜晚膳(約1.5小時) 集合地點:梅窩碼頭 人數:15 語言:廣東話(如需英文翻譯請備註,義務翻譯,未必每個導賞日期均能安排)  費用:$200(農業社區大使為義務導賞,費用只支付本地菜、餐廳餐飲服務及部份農田導賞費用)    報名:網上或電話報名  網上報名: https://goo.gl/forms/3izr236TDYHsyNP92 電話/WhatsApp:阿穎Miffy/阿婷Tiffany 9012-5072

Ian Lillington: Permaculture, Transition and RetroSuburbia - A Sharing by Ian Illington

Ian Lillington: Permaculture, Transition and RetroSuburbia - A Sharing by Ian Illington
Permaculture, Transition and RetroSuburbia A sharing by Ian Lillington, one of the "RetroSuburbia" global team Date: 5 Oct 2018 (Fri) Time: 7:30 - 9:00pm Venue: ACO Bookstore 14/F Foo Tak Building, 365-367 Hennessy Road, Wanchai Registration: https://goo.gl/forms/HHzVG1xzb3VSwdgy2 ----- About this sharing ----- Permaculture’s co-founder and the author of the book "RetroSuburbia", David Holmgren, has thrown out a challenge to all of us – can we adapt in place, and thrive?  Can we imagine a resilient future for our street or apartments? How do we make that happen?  No-one has all the answers.  The intention of this sharing is to help people access this new book and website RetroSuburbia.com. David writes: "within your own household, you are in familiar territory - where you can learn and build on past experience. Without strong households, it's hard to have strong communities." RetroSuburbia is “Permaculture 3.0” The early days of permaculture were about people ‘getting back to the land’, the second phase was about Transition to better community. RetroSuburbia learns from both of those phases and gives us a "Pattern Handbook" for Resilience Households.  Ian will work with the participants to explore what permaculture has to offer to help with the problems of our times; especially knowing that we cannot re-build everything from a blank sheet. We are in the business of Retro-fitting: both our buildings and our habits.  ----- About Ian Lillington ----- Ian Lillington is a Permaculture Teacher, Author and Practitioner. For 30 years, he has worked with and lived near David Holmgren in Australia; and has worked closely with David on Permaculture since the early 1990s. Ian is also a regular visitor to Hong Kong and the UK, and taught Permaculture in Shanghai in 2017. He has in-depth understanding of Permaculture in both countries. He is currently building a straw-bale eco house and continues to teach and develop strategies for resilience. As David does not fly anywhere, and has appointed Ian Lillington as the RS speaker on one of his regular visits to Hong Kong.  ----- About Permaculture ----- A design system that seeks to integrate human activity with natural surroundings and agriculture, so as to create highly efficient self-sustaining ecosystems that provide for humans and the needs of the biosphere that supports us. Permaculture is taught in almost every country, and is more than a gardening system, but sustainable food production is at the core. *No entry fee. Free donation is welcome.
