About the Kadoorie Farm and Botanic Garden
Kadoorie Farm and Botanic Garden (KFBG) is situated on the northern slopes of Hong Kong’s highest mountain – Tai Mo Shan (957 metres). Within KFBG are streams, woodlands, orchards and vegetable terraces – together with conservation and education facilities.
KFBG, today, is a unique public-private partnership, incorporated and designated as a conservation and education centre by Ordinance (Chapter 1156) in the Legislative Council of Hong Kong on 20th January, 1995. While KFBG is a public organisation, it is privately funded by the Kadoorie Foundation.
Since 1995, KFBG has focused on promoting conservation and sustainable living in Hong Kong and South China, with programmes on flora and fauna conservation and the promotion of organic agricultural practices.
KFBG’s mission statement is “We exist to increase the awareness of our relationship with the environment and bring about positive change in the world through conservation and education”.
