Coastline Discovery in Island House

Built at the beginning of the 20th century and declared a heritage monument in 1983, Island House is one of the sites of WWFHK to provide public eco guided visits. GLAs gathered in the early morning on 12 Jan and started their unforgettable experience. We began with an ecological survey near the shoreline and felt amazing that many mollusks were found. Then, we separated into groups to present our artworks, using rubbish collected during our beach cleanup, to reflect how human pollutes the local ecosystem. Through this experience, we realize that although Hong Kong is a small place, it retains a diversified ecology. Humans have already damaged a lot to our ocean. We must therefore appreciate and act to protect it immediately.

Food Waste Dyeing Workshop

In Hong Kong, food waste contributes 1/3 of municipal solid waste. In order to learn how to fully utilize the food waste, Dyelicious gave GLAs a short introduction on how to dye using purple cabbage. After learning the basic technique of dyeing, we can DIY and design by using different patterns. It was a wonderful and forgettable night for participants as they can take their unique and green handicraft home!

Mushroom Kit DIY Workshop

Have you ever imagined mushrooms can be planted by ourselves? On 27 Feb, Urban Mushroom came to our College and introduced how to cultivate mushroom by using recycled coffee grounds. After the workshop, GLAs took their own mushroom kit home and enjoyed the harvest! Through the workshop, GLAs knew deeper about green life style and enjoyed planting by themselves!

Banner Rose Workshop and Selling Booth

Every year, different organizations use banners for promotion and it increases the burden to the landfill. In this regard, GLAs have learnt how to “upcycle” the wasted banner to pretty roses after the Banner Rose Workshop. GLAs also set up a booth during lunch hour for 3 days to sell the meaningful DIY products. We hope that it can bring the “Upcycling” idea to all LWS-ees through this campaign.

LWS Farmland at North Block

This year, the Sky Garden have been moved to G/F, North Block and we got a larger farm area! The “Lee Woo Sing College Organic Farming Scheme” welcomes students and staff club members to rent a little farm lot. Under this scheme, tenants can choose their own crops! Professional tutor Mr. Chu also comes to give lessons regularly to tenants and to share planting experiences. Putting the great efforts and time on cultivating, our farmers were excited about their fruitful harvests including lettuce, tomatoes, chilies, sweet potatoes, etc. We are looking forward to the summer harvests and let us share with you later!

Greenivitives

Our first Greenivities, Soap Recycle Workshop, was held on 26 Sep. This workshop was held in cooperationwith Hong Kong Federation of Women’s Centers. They collect the used soap from the hotels of Hong Kong. In the workshop, our GLAs tried to clean and sterilization the used soap and gave a new life of the soap. Students were excited and they appreciated the meaningful social greening ideas.

Surplus Vegetable Collection Tour is another Greenivities in Term1. GLAs followed the instructions of volunteers from Greeners Action and collected the surplus vegetables in Sha Tin Wet Market. After the collection, GLAs brought all the surplus vegetables to Lek Yuen Estate and gave the needy. Through this program, they knew we should treasure the food and the importance of reduce waste at source.

Autumn is arrived! 25 GLAs went to Luk Keng on 10 Nov to hug the nature! The first entered an old village which let them experience how the old people live with the nature. After climbing the mountain to know more about local plants, they viewed the beautiful scenery of Nam Chung with fishponds, egrets and mangroves. Walking up and down the mountain and across the river, GLAs got a precious lesson on local ecology. We must take our responsibilities to cherish this beautiful nature.

This year, with the better sunshine for the vegetable, the SB 8/F Sky Garden had moved to NB G/F Garden. Our instructor, Mr. Chu, helped our students to conduct a new round of sowing with lettuce, sago and sweet potato. We hope we could get this round of crop in the Chinese New Year successfully.
