GMP C4 Planting Event in Kowloon City
As part of the Greening Master Plan for Hong Kong, public planting events are organized for the benefit of local communities and stakeholders. This planting event was held at Argyle Street Lane adjacent to Holy Trinity Bradbury Centre in Kowloon City on 15 June 2010. GMP works included removing areas of pavement and replacing with colorful shrubs and trees. This has made a great difference to a grey and inhospitable environment. The planting works are adjacent to a kindergarten and dense residential high rise developments and are located on a busy main road. Before and after photos are attached.
Kindergarten children, teachers, District Officials, Local Government and ACLA representatives attended the planting session. The event proved popular and enjoyable. Special comments were made by the public on the great positive difference the GMP had made to their local environment. Similar public planting events are planned for several nearby areas in the near future.
