Be just to the earth; for the good of all beings.

善待土地 ‧ 惠澤眾生

HomelandGreen is a group of Hong Kong volunteers learning to live harmoniously with soil that nurtures all lives. We take part in greening projects and pursue agricultural practices that promote soil health.

As consumers in modern societies, we have all contributed towards man-made desertification and climate change.

Do we now have sufficient reasons and knowledge to support such efforts that can help make our homeland green again?

Our Focus …

Land Restoration

It is a fact that sand from northern deserts in China reaches South East Asia and even North America in the same way sand from the Sahara reaches Europe every year. Tree planting expeditions are organized to stop the encroaching deserts and rehabilitate the degraded land. Join our study and tree planing trips and have an amazing experience.

Services

Conduct research projects in regenerative farming, share results and findings with local practitioners to produce environmental friendly, cost effective nutritional farm products with scientific approach. Correct farming practices would not deplete soil. Rather it increases nutritional value of produce, supports soil rehabilitation and carbon sequestration for addressing global warming issues.

Learning

We learn so much from expert scientists around the globe and finally come to grasp the soil science and biology of Mother Nature. Here we share our findings to get the public to change the view on soil, how plants grow healthily, and ultimately our way of life.

很多農夫和消費者都知道除草劑(其中最惡名昭彰的當然是特為轉基因作物處理雜草用的草甘磷)以及各種有機或化工殺蟲或殺病害劑長遠都做成對土壤健康的傷害,但究竟做成的傷害是甚麼呢?一張海報,便一目了然。Recent USDA surveys show 98% of soybean acres and 97% of corn acres are sprayed with #herbicides that have known health and environmental impacts, including glyphosate, atrazine, and dicamba. This widespread use has detrimental impacts on soil health. Studies show that herbicides reduce mycorrhizal root colonization, disrupt nutrient cycling processes, and lower the nutrient content in associated crops.We’re looking to agroecological practices to restore our soil health. Eliminating synthetic pesticides and implementing diverse cropping systems can stimulate biological activity and rebuild soil organic matter. #Agroecology is the future of farming.Sources: www.panna.org/sites/default/files/soil-pesticides-report.pdf#pesticidefree #glyphosate ...
