🐝 Supplier / Place Of Origin：Flower Hut / Tai Po Wutong Village
🔖 Certification： Local Regenerative Agricultural Approved Farm
🌱 Producer Introduction：
Flower Hut has been active since 2011, where most produce have been grown for personal use. However, since 2022 they have commenced commercial operation. The original intent of the farm was to grow flowers and herbs to share them with folks who are interested in plants and farming.
As one of two farmers at Flower Hut, Green learnt about regenerative farming from Homeland Green and believes that regenerative farming is a way of respecting nature. By practicing this way, she believes it provides a more systematic and holistic way of environmental conservation. Although the farm faces significant challenges - much like the other farmers - she is dedicated to providing consistent high quality crops, and knows this will only come about by researching and putting this study into practice. She hopes that Fa Liu will become a community farm and that they are then able to recruit volunteers and collaborate with different organizations.

Blooms in Winter to Spring. A friend once met a master of fragrant marigold. He heard that it is medicinal and can make tea, so he made it, but since then he has been hesitant to drink it again. Why?
