With the spread of COVID-19 gradually confined, face-to-face learning on campus gradually resumes. “Rooftop Farming” is one of the activities that students look forward to. Students from UGFH1000 or UGFN1000 were enlisted to farm on the rooftop of Hui Yeung Shing Building. Other than gaining hands-on farming experience, they had a great opportunity to reflect on the issues and dilemmas presented in the classics, including the meaning of work, economic inequality, land justice, species evolution, ecological diversity, as well as relevant SDGs. After attending three work sessions, participants were required to write a reflection of no less than 200 words to share their thoughts and feelings. Some of the excellent writings can be found here.
