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.

紅樹林的生態保育功能,很多公眾未有留意,事實上,它封存碳的效能比熱帶雨林更高,荗密的根部,減低了海岸土地的侵蝕,令沖進去的微塑料粒也能被困而再流不出來,當然它更是很多不同生物的自然棲息地。很多地區在海傍發展時,怱略了它的生態價值,肆意地將水泥鋼根建築代替了這自然海岸防衞,真的很不幸。還幸近年城市對渠道和海岸管理的意識漸漸更新了,希望能見到更多用紅樹林處理潮間帶的例子出現。"Thanks to their density and network of gnarly roots, mangroves are known for reducing beach erosion by holding the soil in place. Any sediment that washes in with the tide – and this includes, Professor Duarte says, the microplastics that are now so pervasive in the ocean – then gets trapped in this ever-expanding network of filters. Over time, as the clarity of the water improves, this sheltered environment becomes a nursery ground for fish and shellfish, which in turn help to support a rich ecosystem of marine life.Above ground, mangroves are equally indispensable. They create environments suitable for other plants, including rare orchids, as well as insects, birds, lizards and even larger mammals like monkeys and tigers. This rich tapestry creates endless possibilities for scientific research." Learn more ➡️ orgcns.org/3fpXsLO ... See MoreSee Less

有關詠蛙農場再生農耕的實踐節譯,前二小段介紹了他們主要的理原理和成效,這第三節便清楚看到他們是如何實踐以最少的翻土以保存有機質,堆肥如何應用才收到最佳效果,以及特別留意從收割到預備田列到下堆肥到種新苗之間的轉接,因為怎樣處理這些轉接,完全影響成本效益,很值得參考。氣候土壤和農耕七之三 ... See MoreSee Less
