What you'll do
As city-dwellers, we are very often disconnected from where our food comes from. Yet, what we put on our dinner plates has a direct impact on our planet, our health and our community. At Rooftop Republic, we aim to reconnect urbanites with their own food and help rethink our food system by promoting local, sustainable and community based farming systems. During this visit, participants will have the opportunity to visit a certified organic farm in Hong Kong and learn first-hand about how our food is grown locally and in a sustainable way. Participants will get their hands dirty and practice some organic farming and enjoy a farm to fork experience with produce freshly harvested right from the farm.
Originally from Barcelona, I started my career in the non profit sector. In 2012, I relocated to Hong Kong where I co-founded Rooftop Republic, a social enterprise dedicated to promote urban farming and help transform the way we grow, consume and even think about food. Within the first two years of operations, we've transformed over 25,000 sq ft of underused space into 30+ urban farms and we've organised 250+ events around organic farming and sustainable living. On my own rooftop, I am currently growing kale, tomatoes, pak choi, choi sum, rosemary, oregano, basil and mint!
