GREEN HUB OPEN DAY

Special programmes and tour will be arranged on the day for public to enjoy. Please check below programme timetable for the activity details.

The Old Tai Po Police Station is a Grade 1 historic building, built in 1899. Under Batch II of the "Revitalising Historic Buildings Through Partnership Scheme", the Development Bureau of the Government of the HKSAR collaborates with Kadoorie Farm and Botanic Garden (KFBG) to transform the heritage site into a "Green Hub for Sustainable Living”.  Often described as a green oasis in the concrete jungle, it is a pioneer of low-carbon diet, sustainable landscaping and green architecture, a place for transformative education and an incubator for community collaboration on appropriate, affordable and sustainable alternatives.

The Revitalisation of the Old Tai Po Police Station into a Green Hub for Sustainable Living was recognised with an Honourable Mention in the 2016 UNESCO Asia-Pacific Awards for Cultural Heritage Conservation in 2016. The Green Hub also won the Grand Award (Existing Buildings Category: Completed Projects - Institutional Building) and Special Citation in Eco-service Infrastructure Network under the Green Building Award 2016 jointly organised by the Hong Kong Green Building Council and the Professional Green Building Council.

*Admission is free and the last admission time is 16:30. Please note admission will be suspended when participants exceed carrying capacity of the site. Please click the following link to reserve a place online: www.greenhub.hk/eng/GreenHubVisitAndTour-GeneralPublic.aspx
