A visit to the HKFYG organic farm on 2/2 :)

This is my first time to visit an organic farm and after this visit, I realized that how much effort (including labor force) need to be put in each crop. I understand the reason why organic product cost much higher than non-organic one.

This is a machine that use to kill insects. It uses blue light to attract insect to fly into the bowl of water. The most shinning point is that this machine adopt renewable energy that is more sustainable.

The fence around different farm has different characteristics. For example the strawberry farm welcomes the bees and butterfly to help to spread the seeds but birds are avoided to come to eat the crops, therefore the hole of the fence for the strawberries farm is much wider than the vegetables farm. This is because the vegetables farm need to avoid insects like grasshoppers to eat the crops.

I appreciate the effort of the workers in that organic farm that used to grow these strawberries. To prevent these strawberries being destroyed due to irrigation , a piece of plastic is needed to cover the humid mud.    After covering the plastic, workers need to use their hands to touch the plant and check if the strawberries get ripen or not, if yes the worker need to cut a hole of the plastic and let the strawberries to grow. The plastic has alternative uses, one is used for separating the strawberries from the wet mud, another uses is to frighten the birds not to  eat the crops.

The workers in this farm hang a lot of yellow bottles to prevent insect to destroy the crops. Sharp color (Yellow) attracts insects to fly towards the bottles and the sticky surface helps to stick the insects on the bottles.  Another advantage is that the bottle can be reused after tearing off the yellow sticker.
