A growing number of people residing in high density cities like Hong Kong are aspiring a way of living that is sustainable and regenerative. Rooftop gardens of fruits and vegetables are opening up opportunities for urban farming enthusiasts. It is a rising genre of urban agriculture that poses challenges different from ground-level farming. Mathew Pryor, a professor from the University of Hong Kong, with his expertise in creating rooftop landscapes, and 25 years of landscaping research and fieldwork, developed this bilingual companion guide for individuals and community groups from  this multicultural city to create and run productive rooftop farms with minimal effort and expense.

 

The book won the Publishing Award in the Popular Science Category at the Hong Kong Publishing Biennial Awards in 2017.
