Cultivate resilience at KFBG

The Kadoorie brothers planted the seeds of KFBG when they founded the Kadoorie Agricultural Aid Association in 1951. With years of dedication, effort and love, biodiversity and agriculture flourished in our once barren and rocky hillside. Until 25 years ago it was normal to use chemical-based pesticides and fertilizers on the hillsides here and to issue these to farmers. Responding to changing times, KFBG staff have been working to harmonise our relationship with the environment by reducing the ecological footprint of our operations. Following research and establishing models and practices of more sustainable alternatives, we have been actively sharing our experiences to encourage the wider spread of sustainable living in Hong Kong and Mainland China.
