TRANSFORMING OUR CITY'S LANDSCAPE WITH URBAN FARMING

ABOUT US

Integrating urban farming into our city's lifestyle

Social Enteprise Awards Hong Kong

Rooftop Republic’s team has been pioneering the urban farming movement over the last five years. Our vision is to revolutionise the food system and transform the relationship people have with their food.

We are a truly multi-disciplinary team and we collaborate with architects, engineers, organic farmers, chefs and nutritionists to develop and deliver urban farming solutions.

Our innovative approach and end-to-end services - from design, installation to maintenance and community engagement - aims to incorporate urban farms into city-dwellers’ lifestyles and make it commonplace.

 

At Rooftop Republic we are enthusiastic about the potential for urban farming to transform both urban spaces and mindsets in Hong Kong and to contribute to making our city more sustainable and liveable.

Rooftop Republic Urban Farming is awarded the following recognition at the Social Enterprise Awards 2017 Hong Kong:

  • Most Outstanding Social Enterprise (Meritorious)

  • Most Innovative Social Enterprise
