“In Time Of” and One Bite Design Studio collaborates with nearly 20 local shops in San Po Kong to conceptualize Community Plant Library, an initiative to introduce plants into the community of San Po Kong. With plants as the medium, Community Plant Library encourages locals to walk around and get to know their community, offering the opportunity for fresh encounters and interactions in public spaces.
Partner shops will display furniture made with discarded wood materials gathered by Coutou Woodworking Studio from AIRSIDE construction site. This sustainable furniture is displayed across the public spaces outside snacks shops, herbal tea shops and eateries within the cozy neighbourhood. This is one true destination everyone longs for.
The partner shops would also collaborate with leaders to host workshops such as plant dyeing, up-cycling of coffee grounds into planting pots and ginger powder. Local shops form a community map linking San Po Kong’s network of plants.
