The New Farm was set up in early 2015 as a new initiative to promote sustainability living. Several flower beds on the podium outside New College were turned into farming field for practicing organic farming. A farmer from Long Valley Mr. Kan Wai Hong has been engaged to teach our students how to farm.
A complimentary composting programme has been developed at the same time where food waste generated from each floor of the College are collected and composted with Bokashi system at the New Farm. The compost obtained are used in the New Farm.
