GrowingSmart.HK is raising funds from the crowd to bring back food production and organic urban farming in Hong Kong.

Hong Kong; 14, March 2017: GrowingSmart.HK announced today that they are now at 37% of their funding goal with still about three weeks to go before their campaign ends. They launched their campaign using rewards-based crowdfunding platform SparkRaise to create an organic farming movement in Hong Kong. The company has set out to raise HKD 20000 to boost the creation of a farm in Peng Chau Island. The funds raised will help in acquiring professional farming equipment including solar-pump irrigation systems and further investments in farm infrastructure.


GrowingSmart.HK is a project aimed at raising awareness of organic farming and permaculture in HongKong. Co-founded by a woman who gave up her day job, and assisted by a community of friends and colleagues, GrowingSmart.HK is giving it a shot to bring farming and food production back to HongKong.

Shahara Khaleque, the Co-Founder of GrowingSmart.HK said this in a social enterprise summit where she was a speaker:

“There are some very serious environmental issues facing this beautiful city of Hong Kong today. GrowingSmart, as a social enterprise, hopes to challenge some of the disconnect with nature which is allowing this to happen, through our permaculture-based community education farm… We believe that farming and food is a very direct way to engage people and can have tremendous knock-on effects in terms of interest in the environment and sustainability as a whole. Through our carefully-designed farm, farming workshops and field trips for both children and adults – we genuinely hope to create a hub of pro-active, positive environmentalism in Hong Kong inspiring a profound and long-lasting change.”

In an urban jungle like Hong Kong, food production and regenerative farming are becoming very rare yet remain a critical issue for sustainability. GrowingSmart is bringing farming back to Hong Kong and currently doing it through workshops, company team-building events, school field trips, and volunteer activities in the small island of Peng Chau. They are also building and designing rooftop gardens.

The single-wheeled structure endows Airwheel X8 with the excellent agility and at the same time adds to the hardness to use. Being a beginner who has not yet been exposed to it, he has a way of falling off X8.
