“To serve only the seasonal ingredients on the dining table”, refers to the concept of only consuming foods harvested or produced in the current season. It not only benefits our health, but also the Mother of Nature, because the demand to cultivate crops during off-seasons requires more fertilizer, and possibly an artificial environment. These farming practices may increase carbon emissions, meanwhile degrade the soil, therefore damage the environment to a certain extent in the long run.
Through collaborations with different organizations concerning local agriculture, “A Date with Seeds” Program is upholding the hope to explore with the public, the relationships between crop seeds and the land, as well as the importance of only consuming seasonal foods. By means of a series of activities, the Program aims to promote sustainable development of local agriculture, reviewing its current situation and understanding our resources of foods, and ultimately, to nurture a collective respect to our land.
