Gold Coast Farm ​​

 

Gold Coast Farm fosters a shared love of green living. Partnering with Smiley Planet, the 3,680 sq. ft. farm is the first farm in a Hong Kong hotel to observe organic farming practices in growing various crops including big leaf mustard, cauliflower, chili, corn, eggplant, lemon grass, okra, papaya, roselle and more. The farm welcomes hotel guests, students and community members like NGOs such as Benji's Centre, Greeners Action, Hong Kong Children in Need Foundation, The ChickenSoup Foundation and The Hub Hong Kong, to take part in farming and harvesting activities. It also features organic and eco-friendly cultivation practices, like the use of organic fertiliser to nurture the soil for healthy and nutritious produce.


Hong Kong Gold Coast has a thriving variety of tree species. Stretching more than 100 metres between the Hong Kong Gold Coast Hotel and Piazza, this leaf path is imprinted with 20 leaf species gathered from trees around the neighbourhood, bringing a whole new "Nature. Leisure. Pleasure." experience to visitors. The leaf path is also part of Sino Group's "Farm Together" integrated green project, established to plant the seeds for sustainability and grow a brighter future together.
