HK Farm is an organisation of Hong Kong farmers, artists and designers founded in April 2012. Working in the city, lead farmers Glenn Eugen Ellingsen, Michael Leung and Anthony Ko collaborate with communities and organisations to highlight the importance of urban agriculture and locally produced organic food.
In September 2014, Hong Kong Farm conducted a green takeover of Spring Workshop’s main terrace to kick off a year-long residency. Their extended program included multiple public access points to experimental, community-based urban farming, such as an autumn edible harvest workshop, planter-building lessons, seed-bombing with student groups, documentation of both the farm and HK’s farming protagonists, a talk-to-your-plants and plant selfie booth, a winter discussion and finally The HK FARMers’ Almanac (2015)created during an intensive three-day embodied knowledge book sprint.'
