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.

彩色掃描電子顯微鏡下,旱金蓮的一幀葉底照片,可看到有很多毛狀體滿佈葉的表面,這些毛狀體保護植物免受小型食草動物的侵襲,也減低水氣蒸發。葉脈分支也清晰可見。葉脈由韌皮部和木質部組成。韌皮部將葉子光合作用製造的糖運送到植物其他部份,木質部則將根部吸入的水和礦物運到葉子去。我們人類的視力有限,經常會簡化了看不到的東西。植物作為一個生命體,小小部份都展現自然界鬼斧神工的複雜結構,其維持生命能力的生化機理,更不可思議了。植物,怎會就是只吃肥料那麼簡單!The underside of a nasturtium leaf (Tropaeolum sp.). Numerous hairs (trichomes) cover the surface, they protect the plant from small herbivores and reduce the amount of evaporation from the leaf's surface. The branching veins are also seen. The veins consist of the phloem, which transports sugar made in the leaves during photosynthesis to the rest of the plant, and the xylem, which transports water and minerals from the roots to the leaves.
