Introduction 簡介

Located in the international node of the East and the West, Hong Kong carries a special strategic position in matters like transportation, cultural exchange, information dissemination, economic and financial activities.  With this background plus her urban nature make Hong Kong a perfect option for our Farming Technologies and the education of the public of green living and the respect for nature. 

 

Our Ecological Park is just by the side of our Agricultural Technologies Research Centre.  With the mission of educating the public.  We wish to make the public, both the corporates and the individuals, aware that corporate profit, ecological preservation, and social responsibility will not grow at the expense of the other.  They can co-exist.

 

We are in response to the claims from NOGs like UN, World Bank and WWF that the world will face food shortage by 2050.  Famine may result into social unrests, political unrests; wars and etc.

 

GHI, a private-sector agriculture group formed by multi-national companies like IBM and Du Pont.  "Countries need to prioritize agriculture and the growing of food in more sustainable methods,” It's Executive Director, Ms. Margaret Zeigler's saying,  “If we don't start now, we'll have a problem sooner, even by 2030."

 

Although the world is facing the food shortage, funding on agricultural technologies research is however decreasing. In our Ecological Park, we will implement the technologies developed in the Research Centre for daily life.  Even land supply is getting scarce,  by practicing City Farming, a densely populated city can still supply the greens they need.  Taking care of the well-being of our Earth when we are working hard to achieve economic growth and enjoy our wealth. Make Earth sustainable. The business carries out their social responsibilities. Everyone in this society offers solutions to social problems within his/her capability. Work together to achieve an inclusive society.

 

位於東方和西方的國際交匯處,香港在交通、文化交流、資訊傳遞、經濟和金融活動上具有策略性的地位。這背景讓香港在我司研發農業科技及建立生態園方面成為一個理想不過的地方。

 

這個具有示範和教育意義的生態園就在我們的農業科技中心旁邊,讓大眾 – 企業和個人 – 瞭解到商業利益、環保和社會責任是可共存,沒有抵觸的。

 

在農業科技中心,我們正回應世界組織如聯合國、世界銀行、世界自然基金會等全球性非政府組織的呼籲:世界正面對糧食短缺,如果不積極改善,到2050年我們會面對饑荒,饑荒更可引至社會和政治動亂、戰爭等。

由杜邦和IBM等國際機構所組成的GHI是一個關注世界農業生產的組織,其執行董事Margaret Zeigler說:“各國需要優先考慮農業和以更持續的方法增加糧食,否則問題(糧食短缺)會提早發生,可能是2030年。”

 

雖然世界正面對缺糧的問題,可是農業研究經費卻有減無增,這個生態園就是要把我門從農業科技園研發的城市種植和綠色生活模式帶到日常生活裡,在土地日益減少時,卻可在人煙稠密的城市種植,達到自給自足,並且在我們努力追求經濟增長和享受生活的同時,對我們這個家 – 地球 – 也關心愛護,讓世世代代可在美好的環境下生活成長,工商業體現他們在社區應有的責任,協力解決社會問題,達至一共容社會。

Missions 使命

Build up a city model that the public and business corporates carry out their activities in a green and sustainable manner.  A harmonized society with quality living.    Sharing with the future generations the precious resources of our planet Earth.

 

做就一個和諧社區模式,大眾與工商業以一個綠色可持續的方式生活,令生活更優質和健康,世世代代共用美好的資源。

City Farming – Advantages LED Plant Light & T-max Water

城市農耕 – 優點 LED種植燈 & T-max

LED plant light makes agricultural possible with the absence of sun light.  Allowing indoor large scale cultivation in a factory building possible:

–

* All environmental factors are under control, making agriculture possible under the most feasible conditions like right temperature, right wavelengths and the right soil without the disturbance of Nature’s cycle.  Cultivation can be carried out the whole year round.

 

–* No restriction by land supply.  Extension vertically

 

–* Stable supply with good quality

 

–* Reduce carbon emission as transport distance reduced by a large extent.

 

–* More vegetable growth in the same space as plants can be grown closer as LED produces less heat.

 

–* With strategical significance for the security of a city.

 

LED種植燈讓耕作可在無陽光下進行,就是我們可以把這個原本應在室外陽光普照進行的工作移施到室內,以工廠的模式進行耕種,好處是:

 

* –環境受控制,在最有利的條件下種植如適合的溫度、波長、土壤等,再加上帶能量的水,不受外在環境影響,達到一年四季種植

–

* 不受土地供應限制,向高空發展

 

–* 供應和質素穩定

 

*–大幅度減小因運輸而引起的碳排放

 

* –LED種植燈制造少量的熱力,農作物與燈之間的距離比傳統的植物燈拉近,在較少的地方得到較多的產量

–

* 讓城市可自給自足,對於一個地方的安穩有策略性的意義

Our City Farming are divided into Indoor Farming and Outdoor Farming.  The use of LED Plant Light and T-MAX Water indoor is to practice City Farming.  Outdoor farming is to test the function of T-MAX water on plants.

Cultivation is divided into 4 categories:

 

–* Fruit Growing

 

–* Leafy Vegetable Growing

 

–* Vegetable Growing: Gourds and Tomatoes

 

–* Flowers Growing

 

According to research, agricultural produce can stay fresh for a longer time without refrigeration.  They can also better resist harsh weather.  Plants are stronger and with more biomass.

 

我們的耕作地點有室內和室外,在室內採用LED種植燈和T-MAX 水是實現城市耕種,在室外是實現T-MAX水在種植的應用。

種植部分分開4類:

–* 水果種植

* –蔬菜種植

–* 瓜果種植

–* 花朵種植

經研究,以T-MAX水種植出來的農產品可在沒冷凍下保持新鮮更久、更能抵抗不利天氣、更健康和更豐盛。
