3月3日南涌永續希望日 3.3 Nam Chung Sustainable Hopes Day

33日南涌永續希望日 3.3 Nam Chung Sustainable Hopes Day

我們在新界北部,遇上一個叫南涌的地方。它是很重要的候鳥南遷過冬的休養地。我們希望籌措足夠的資金,向村民承租這片濕地,一方面保持它的生態環境,另一方面則實踐永續農業生產,展示漁農生產與生態環境的和諧並存。

We come across a place called Nam Chung in northern New Territories. It is a significant resting place for migrating birds from the north. This 120-acres private farm land is an important wet land in the surrounding area. We wish to lease this land, to conserve the ecosystem and practice sustainable farming, as to show how fish rearing, farming and ecosystem conservation can co-exist at the same time.

南涌濕地三面圍山,約共二百畝魚塘。後來魚塘沒有進行養殖,主要的大魚塘水位下降,變成了一片生氣勃勃的濕地,濕地淺水處長滿荷花,荷花開滿一整個夏天。秋天的時候,荷葉凋謝了,北方的季候鳥便飛到了南涌,鷺鳥可以佇立在水裏養神,成群的水鴨把頭伸到水裏喋喋不休。

Nam Chung wetland is surrounded by hills on three sides and there are about 200 hectares of fish ponds. As fish are no longer reared in the fish ponds, the water level dropped and become lively wetland. The shallow water is full of lotuses in the whole summer. When lotuses wither in autumn, the migrating birds in the north flew to Nam Chung. Egrets stand still in the water and attain mental tranquility. Flocks of teals are babbling with their heads into the water.

第一個永續希望 The First Sustainable Hope

每年四月,我們需要為數約八萬港元支付魚塘的租金。如果我們祇有八萬元,我們可以保持這片魚塘繼續生生不息,不會淪為釣魚場、燒烤場或者是虛假的甚麼假日嘈吵健康燒烤農莊。

Every April, we need HKD 80000 to pay the rent for the fish ponds. If we only have HKD 80000, we can keep the livelily fish ponds, preventing them from becoming fishing sites, barbecue sites or those so-called ‘healthy” noisy barbecue farms.

第二永續個希望 The Second Sustainable Hope

如果我們可以籌得15萬元,我們可以改善現有的基建和設施,一方面進行小量的種植,另一方面把魚塘上的建築物修築為一個樸實的退修中心,一個低調的保育心靈所在。

If we could raise HKD150 000, we can improve the existing infrastructure and facilities. For example, we can carry out small-scale farming, and change the buildings on the premise as a simple retreat centre, a silent place where the souls are rested.

第三個永續希望 The Third Sustainable Hope

如果我們可以籌得15萬元以上,我們可以實踐永續農業。我們的計劃是秋冬季在魚塘底乾燥的土地上生產食物,魚塘壆種植長期作物和果樹。春夏雨季,魚塘水位上升,又會變成各種水生動植物的領地。這樣的水旱輪種交替,展示人、食物生產、大自然生態可以和諧共處。

If we could raise more than $150 000, we can implement sustainable farming. Our plan is to produce food on the fish pond when it dried up during dry seasons. Crops and orchards can be grown on the high land in between fish ponds in a long term. During rainy seasons in spring and summer, the water level of the fish ponds will rise and they will be the domains of aquatics again. Through crop rotation, the harmony between human, food production and ecology can be achieved.

香港永續農業關注協會的角色
The Role of Hong Kong Sustainable Agriculture Association

我們維持南涌魚塘的存在和永續農業發展,並且在維持過程,安排志願者共同協作。我們沒有受薪的職員,祇有義務的工作。籌款和款項運用過程完全公開。

We maintain the existence and sustainable farming in Nam Chung Fish Ponds. During the process, we organise volunteers to help . We have no paid staff but only volunteers. The process of fund raising and the use of funds will all be disclosed.

是次籌款的安排 Arrangement of this fund raise

是次籌款目標以15萬元為目標。所籌款項低於8萬元,意味我們沒有能力承租魚塘,我們會放棄所有希望,把籌得的款項退回捐款人。所以希望捐款人在捐款時附上個人聯絡方法,以方便日後協會進一步聯絡和溝通。未能順利退回捐款人的款項,協會會全數捐獻與慈善機構或與農業、環保相關的團體。

Our fund-raise goal is $150,000. If the fund raised is below $80,000, that means we cannot afford to rent the fish ponds. We will give up all hopes and return donations to the donors. Therefore, we hope all donors would attach their contacts when they make the donation. This enables further communication. The association will give all the unsuccessful returned donations to charity organizations or organizations related to agriculture and environment protection.

香港永續農業關注協會簡介 Introduction of Hong Kong Sustainable Agriculture Association

為了南涌可持續發展而成立,立足南涌,放眼香港的農業可持續發展。曾經撰寫三年計劃提交香港可持續發展基金申請資助,可惜撥款委員對我們的計劃並不支持,不予撥款。我們祇好多走幾步,聯絡同道友好,廣集資源,走永續成長之路。

It is established for the sustainable development of Nam Chung. We focus on Nam Chung, but we strive for sustainable agriculture in Hong Kong. We did write a three -year proposal to the Hong Kong Sustainable Development Fund, but the funding committee did not support our plan and did not approve the funding. What we can do now is to contact interested friends, gather resources and work hard for a sustainable growth on ourselves .
