The site composes of 400+ linking farmlands as well as accommodates 200+ bird species, including a range of international conserved species. Through participating in harvesting and ecological monitoring work, we hope to alleviate Long Valley’s landscape and biodiversity situation. Other than a series of active habitat and species management measures, volunteers will also have the precious chance to interact with Hong Kong indigenous villagers, who are descendants of local residents during 1890s. It will be a unique gateway to learn more about the indigenous culture in the concrete jungle. [See the project: https://youtu.be/O_UHy86sHhE]

Lage und Freizeit

In contrast to the densely populated areas of Hong Kong Island and Kowloon, Ping Che is a sub-urban area characterized by natural scenery, charming small villages and stunning sunset. The place is also situated just next to Shenzhen, China.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

The project is co-organized by VolTra, Fragrant Village and Ta Kwu Ling/Ping Che Alliance for “Saving Our Home” (Alliance). Mid-autumn festival falls on the 15th day of the eighth lunar month (13 SEP 2019). In the 19th century, villagers began performing a dragon dance to stop a run of bad luck afflicting their village. Accompanied by drummers and erupting firecrackers, The villagers made a huge dragon from straw and covered it with incense sticks. They danced for three days and three nights and the bad luck disappeared. More than a century later, their village has been all but swallowed up by Hong Kong’s fast-growing city. But the dragon keeps on dancing. It has even danced its way onto China’s third national list of intangible cultural heritage. The theme of the workcamp is to appreciate the importance of the local village and its culture. They are going to beautify the village, farming with local people and try the very traditional local food, and the most important thing to do is to set up the event of the Fire Dragon Dance during Mid-autumn Festival.
