Mi-VolTra: Long Valley Rice Harvesting Experience Day (15, 21 Jul)

  
  


Long Valley in Sheung Shui is the largest agricultural wetland in Hong Kong.  By the time when summer is coming, the first batch of rice has been reaped already!

Cheers for the harvest season!!

From concrete jungle to Long Valley paddy field, we will probe into ecological farming and pay an effort to strive for local agriculture industry together. 

As we all know, every bit marks the hard work in harvesting. However, many others still don’t treasure the strenuous effort behind. Shall we challenge ourselves this summer by devoting in the only remaining paddle field in Long Valley? After a long day of harvesting, rice milling and granule drying, let’s relax on the straws while admiring the glorious Long Valley wetland sunset.
