Promoting Positive Values through Food with School of Everyday Life
Food plays a big part in our everyday life. It satisfies our hunger and it also fulfills the social function of relationship building. Yet, we seldom take time to examine our relationship with the food we consume, how food and farming relate to the wellbeing of us as individuals and the environment at large.
The D. H. Chen Foundation is delighted to launch a whole new program in collaboration with School of Everyday Life (“SOEL”), to promote the positive values of compassion, care and gratefulness. The program entitled 良食教育 (“Program”) will establish the first-ever experiential learning galleries on food education and organic farming in Hong Kong and also one organic farm plot at SOEL’s campus. The Program also offers year-round diversified learning workshops for students, families and the community inviting participants to explore the role of food in life and reflect on what our body and mind feed on.
The two experiential learning galleries will be officially opened at the 食之者眾 weekend event, of which details are as follows:
Date: June 24 – 25, 2017 Time: 11am-6pm Venue: SOEL Campus (178 Kam Shan, Tai Po, New Territories) Content: vegetarian food stalls, music performances, workshops, talks and the opening ceremony of the experiential learning galleries.
