Low Carbon Diet Workshop (Organized Group)

Low Carbon Diet Workshop

The Old Tai Po Police Station in Hong Kong is a Grade 1 historic building, built in 1899. Under the "Revitalising Historic Buildings Through Partnership Scheme", Kadoorie Farm and Botanic Garden collaborates with the Development Bureau to transform the heritage site into a "Green Hub for Sustainable Living”.  The Green Hub has started serving the public since 2015.

Under the Revitalisation Scheme, the Green Hub has made adaptive use of part of the Canteen Block of Old Tai Po Police Station as the Eat Well Classroom for teaching low-carbon cookery. This Low Carbon Diet Workshop allows participants to re-connect our relationship with the nature by delving into the origin of food and the carbon emissions involved in food production. The programme includes activity sessions of herb harvesting at the Kitchen Garden and preparation of low carbon snack, finishing with a heritage tour on how the revitalisation project has conserved the historic and architectural values of the building, as well as the trees and egretry of ecological importance at the Old Tai Po Polics Station.  The workshop helps one discover that the journey to low-carbon living is more colourful, delicious, affordable and joyful than most people may think.

The Eat Well Canteen


  • Compared with dairy desserts, mochi made with vegan ingredients is healthier and more refreshing, with less carbon footprint. To reduce our carbon emissions, please bring your own food container to take away the mochi.
  • The Kitchen Garden is a field-classroom for learning about food ‘from field to table’ and processing ‘waste’ for organic resource recovery.
