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. The Low Carbon Diet Workshop guides participants to learn about food from field to table, as well as recovering food waste as a resource and returning it to the soil. The programme includes activity sessions of herb harvesting at the Kitchen Garden, preparation of low carbon food and mindful eating experience, 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.
