The Leisure and Cultural Services Department has launched the "Community Garden Programme" in February 2004 and implemented at selected parks or tree banks in all districts by phases. Under the guidance of the instructors, participants can learn how to grow ornamental plants, fruits and vegetables in parks nearby and then take home the harvest themselves.
The scheme is
meant to encourage the
public to participate in greening activities at
community level and to adopt greening
activities as part of daily life. It also aims
at arousing public awareness in greening
and environmental protection through
participating in gardening activities.
