Environmental education charity fostering and developing environmental and sustainability education for children and adults; annual tree-planting program

Ark Eden Foundation delivers tangible environmental, social and financial improvements by working practically and creatively with thousands of people in Hong Kong. In homes, the workplace, schools and the wider community, we help to make the small changes that have a big impact on the things that matter. Our Community Action Teams help those with special needs through horticulture and animal therapy and vocational skills training. We invite local elders to share their valuable outdoor and farming skills and traditional practices. Disadvantaged youths are offered the chance to connect with nature and develop a passion for the environment. Our Eco Teams restore and conserve Hong Kong's disused old and heritage buildings, villages and abandoned farms, transforming them into eco-centes and eco-lodges for the whole community. Our Forests of Lantau Project is aggressively reforesting areas that have been devastated by hill fires and subsequent soil erosion by planting thousands of Hong Kong saplings each year from our own native tree nursery.
