This Sunday we will be visiting Kadoorie Farm and Botanic Garden, a leader for conservation and environmental education in Hong Kong since the 1950s. It will be a casual and relaxed stroll through KFBW, where we will get a chance to learn about Hong Kong’s plants and animals up close. There will be many captive animals that would be very hard to see in the wild in Hong Kong, and there will be a chance of seeing some wild animals too! We will spend about 3 hours there and the group will be capped at 8 people.
Kadoorie Farm and Botanic Garden (KFBG) spreads over 148 hectares of land and is located on the northern slopes and foothills of Hong Kong’s highest mountain – Tai Mo Shan. Its deep-set valley has streams, woodlands and vegetable terraces – together with conservation and education facilities.
The Farm was established in 1956 to provide agricultural aid to farmers in need of support to help them lead independent lives. Today, reflecting the changing times, KFBG plays an active role in promoting the conservation of biodiversity in Hong Kong and South China, allied with sustainable agriculture and creative nature education.
