Growing to Learn

Jul 06, 2012

High above the skyline of Hong Kong, something is growing. In fact, lots of things are growing – including young plants, and young minds.


The Amway Organic Farming Program teaches organic farming to primary school students, while promoting the importance of environmental stewardship.


Organized by the Hong Kong Organic Resource Centre and sponsored by Amway Hong Kong, the program has made a large impact since its launch in November 2011, with more than 20 training sessions, organic farming workshops and organic farm open days.


In February, a kickoff ceremony involved primary students pledging to be responsible organic farmers and to protect the environment. All the while, Amway distributors pledge to be “Green Ambassadors” for the program, working hand in hand with junior farmers in hopes of building a greener world.


Green Ambassadors and students alike go through a series of workshops to promote the organic message and learn how to organically farm. It’s a green cycle that they hope to pass on for generations to come.
