西營盤天台農場 Sai Ying Pun Rooftop Farm

by 西營盤街坊、Edible HK、HK Farm Very MK、HK Farm

 

唐樓是一個多元的城市象徵,由地面舖位、樓上單位以至寬廣天台連成一體,共存共生。上居下舖的唐樓造就了西營盤獨特的街道空間,讓街道西營盤的街道生活充滿特色。

 

唐樓的天台空間廣闊實用,陽光充沛,住客多利用天台空間晾曬衣服,或於天台燒烤聚會。於是我們便想:「可否多利用區內的閒置天台,為西營盤帶來多點綠色空間?」

 

因此,我們聯繫了西營盤街坊老店和來自旺角、油麻地的都市農夫在西營盤一個閒置的天台上建立天台農場。我們從新界東北找來泥土,在西營盤老店找廚餘堆肥,自製種植木箱,組織街坊參與,在天台建立以社區為本的有機生態耕作系統。

 

在過程中能推動社區空間綠化的同時,我們把新和舊的西營盤街坊及老店都連繫起來。

 

Tong Lau buildings make the urban symbol of diversity. The building’s ground shops, upstairs units and the spacious rooftop are all interrelated as a whole. As Tong Lau buildings have their shops facing the street, the abundance of Tong Lau buildings makes a vibrant street life in Sai Ying Pun.

 

Tong Lau Buildings’ rooftop is known to be spacious and of high functional value with abundant sunlight. Residents like to hang clothes and even have BBQ parties on the rooftop space. So the question pops in our mind – Can we better utilize the rooftop space so that more green space can be provided in Sai Ying Pun?

 

Therefore, we have joined hands with neighbours and old shops in Sai Ying Pun, urban farmers from Mong Kong and Yau Ma Tei and together make a rooftop farm on a Tong Lau building’s vacant roof. We find soil from the North East New Territories, collect food waste for composting from old shops in Sai Ying Pun and make our own wooden planter boxes. During the process, we gather neighbours in helping to manage the farm together and establish the community-based organic farming system.
