To continue with its green engagement for staff after the “Upcycling Make Easy” workshops held in October, the Hong Kong Hospital Authority New Territories East Cluster (NTEC) organized another round of green activities under the banner of its Green Gala to further promote low carbon living.

Supported again by CCA, two “Organic Farming” workshops were held at the Prince of Wales Hospital in November. During the workshop, participants learned the concept of organic farming and how to practise organic farming for themselves, using the correct materials and methodology. Apart from its environment greening effect, urban farming has proven benefits in strengthening team spirit at workplaces. More fun from farming often means less stress at work too.
