Enrolments for Tuen Mun District gardening course start Tuesday
**************************************************

Amateur gardeners wishing to advance their horticultural skills are reminded to enrol from Tuesday (October 25) to October 31 for the first gardening course in Tuen Mun District under the Community Garden Programme.

The new course will start on December 4 in Tuen Kwai Road Community Garden (next to Fu Tai Estate) where participants can learn how to grow plants, including fruit and vegetables under expert guidance and then take home the harvest.

Organised by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department, the Community Garden Programme encourages people to participate in greening activities at the community level through which they can increase their awareness of greening and environmental protection.

The gardening course in the Tuen Mun District, with a maximum of 50 participants, will be conducted in Cantonese. Each successful applicant will be allocated a plot of 2.25 square metres on which to practise gardening.

Each course lasts four months. The fee for each course is $400. Successful applicants can bring along four friends or relatives, who do not have to pay the course fee.

Participants may choose the mode of participation that suits them best. They can take care of their plants from 8am to 6pm daily, or restrict their activities to holidays and weekends, leaving the garden keepers to look after the regular watering of plants. The gardening course conducted by an instructor will be held on Sundays from 2pm to 5pm.

Application forms are available at the Tuen Mun District Leisure Services Office, 3/F, Tuen Mun Government Offices Building, 1 Tuen Hi Road, Tuen Mun, and also at the department's sports centres in Tuen Mun district. Completed forms should be submitted from Tuesday to October 31. If the number of applicants exceeds the course's quota, places will be allocated by ballot.

For enquiries, please call 2451 0304.
