This year's Farmfest will be held on Jan 18-20th at Mongkok Fa Hui Park. For details, click on the picture above.
It's the first time Local Produce joins the fest. Other than promoting organic living, introducing crops and services by Local Produce, we are planning to freshly cook some sizzling hotpot vegetables for you to sample.
We are at stall OG40. And we would like to invite you to come and visit us. Bring along your friends and relatives. Let's gather, let's taste the fresh organic vegetables, and have fun.  (Do bring your own utensils.) (tl)

十二月初七 有煙霞 11-19℃ 濕度55% 審核編碼: 13Ar 00
菜會攤位風景優美,農夫玖哥掛上招牌後便開工,早上第一輪客人多是街坊,中午過後,人潮湧現,見蔬菜快要沽清,急電玖哥添菜;誰知未到下午6時,後添的蔬菜亦告沽清,幫工蕙蕙和我和阿左向向隅人士一一致歉,繼續在攤位向大眾派發菜會的小單張,傾談有機生活和菜會的服務,認識了一群新朋友,其中有彭先生夫婦,稱讚菜會的中英文網誌及菜譜很出色,希望買到玖哥的金菜頭及學如何栽種。
最令所有來幫忙的人和菜會上下振奮的事,就是同道中人的正面評價。感謝。 (張慧儀)

Our stall in the Farmfest has a nice view. Once 9Gor hang up our sign, we were officially opened for business. The first wave of customers were locals. People started to pour in after noon and very soon we were going to be out of stock. We called 9Gor immediately for more fresh vegetables and we were sold out again before 6:00pm.  Our helper Wai Wai, Ah Cho and I had to apologize to disappointed customers one by one. We continued to give out leaflets, talked to people about organic lifestyle and introduced the services we provide. We acquired some new friends, among them Mr and Mrs Pang praised us for this bilingual blog and extraordinary recipes. They wanted to buy golden beet and learned to grow it organically from 9Gor.
The most inspiring thing for the volunteers and the crew was the positive feedbacks from fellow organic lifestyle seekers. Thank you. (vl)

十二月初八 有煙霞 6-18℃ 濕度61% 審核編碼: 13As 00
今晨天氣寒冷,向日葵旁邊的紫椰菜出現結霜情況。
為配合大會的送貨入場時限,農夫姐姐們要比平時更早下田割菜,裝籮後我立刻啟程。
阿左早已在攤位等候,農夫姐姐阿芳見離早上9時的貨車離場時限還有一段時間,便走到攤位內,穿上綠色圍裙,幫忙稱菜入袋。

It was freezing cold this morning, the purple cabbages beside the sunflower were withstanding a light frost.
In order to meet the delivery schedule set by the organizer, our lady farmer went harvesting a lot earlier than usual. Lady farmer Ah Fong and I set off to the fest right after the veggies were packed into baskets.
Ah Cho was at the stall waiting when we arrived.  Realising that there was still time to spare before the nine o'clock delivery lorry departure deadline, Ah Fong put on her green apron, went inside the stall to help weighing and packing vegetables. (sh)

  衹貼一張照片,是為表揚食生的阿聲、資深義工Ivy和我的好拍檔阿左
  三位幫工。
  我們在午後已差不多售出昨天整天的總蔬菜量,早已知會玖哥下田收割添菜,誰知警察在大會外面實施人流和交通管制,送菜車泊得老遠,阿左要用手推車分幾次把重重的有機菜推幾條街送到攤位,貨齊時已是下午5時許。
大會8時關門,我們需在兩小時之內再銷出昨天整天的總蔬菜量。
就在這時,跳甲先生突然出現,跳入攤位內,和阿左用大動作超高速稱菜包裝,遊人都被吸引圍了過來看個究竟,當知道這是剛剛從田裡摘來、新鮮過新鮮的有機菜,又見我們明碼實價,他們紛紛付鈔搶購,不久便全數沽清。
我忙著賣菜找贖,若能拍下過情掛網,大家看後一定嘖嘖稱奇。(張慧儀)

I didn't post another photo because I would like to shower praises on the three helpers: Sam the raw vegan, Ivy the veteran volunteer and my dear partner Ah Cho.
Around noon, we had nearly sold as much vegetable as we sold yesterday. We called the farm and asked 9Gor to harvest and send us more.
Who would have thought the police exercised crowd and traffic management outside the venue, 9Gor's had to park his delivery lorry miles away. Ah Cho ran several trips using a trolley to fetch the heavy baskets of veggies to our stall.
By the time all the veggies arrived, the clock struck five in the evening.
The fest closed at 8 pm, we were required to sell as much vegetable as we sold yesterday again in two hours.
Just then, Mr. Flea Beatle popped up from nowhere, hopped into our stall, worked with Ah Cho weighing and packing veggies in a quite exaggerated and invigorated manner, pulling the curious passersby to gather around our stall to find out what was going on. When they learnt the veggies were freshly harvested and the clearly marked prices, they started pressing money into our hands. Before we knew it, all veggies were sold out in no time.
If I was not busy selling veggies and giving change, if I had a second to film the whole scene and posted it here, I am sure you will find it super amazing. (sh)

十二月初九 有煙霞 10-18℃ 濕度64% 審核編碼: 13At 00
農夫姐姐們比昨晨更早下田摸黑割菜,交基哥一早送來滿滿一大車。
菜會攤位來了農墟經驗賣手施姐姐;每天包裝和發送所有菜園蔬菜的農夫姐姐阿芳;幫工Vera和Ivy精神抖擻;我負責推廣有機生活;農夫玖哥親自監場督工。
是日大寒,唯天氣適宜趁墟,會場依舊人山人海,同樣忙了十多小時,售出的蔬菜和查詢菜會服務的人次都比昨天少。
我們每人都能獨當一面,欠缺的是上兩天的團隊投入感和兼容能力,未能發揮昨天吸引遊人的策略。
有了初次經驗,明年若再參加,謹望大家會合拍,做出好成績。(張慧儀)

Lady farmers got up much earlier than yesterday to harvest before sunrise and brought our driver Gei Gor a huge truck load of freshly cut vegetables at dawn.
We had at the stall Ah Z, a well-experienced sales at farmer's markets and Ah Fong, our lady farmer responsible for daily packing and sending of vegetables. Our volunteers Vera and Ivy helped out in high spirit while I focused on promoting organic living. Farmer 9Gor was our site supervisor.
Although it was the beginning of the coldest days in our lunar calendar, the weather was perfect for going to a fest.  People kept pouring in throughout the day. 
Busy bees again for more than 10 hours, sadly, sales volume and enquiries were comparitively less than that of Saturday.
Although everybody had his strong points, we did not have the team spirit and compatibility in the last two days to carry out the strategy to attract the onlookers and passersby to our stall.
Given the first lesson, we hope to work together better and make greater achievements next year. (is)

[5] 做義工的感想

It was a very fruitful weekend.
I started with pretty good exercise by walking in the park, running cross the traffic lights, passing through the football field ……. finally I found the festival venue and then our booth.
Next challenge was to learn and memorize both the Chinese and English names for each vegetable for sale. The people dont read the labels but just pick and ask.
I noted that people love to (1) bulk buy for less - $50 for 3; (2) squeeze themselves in the crowd; (3) buy vegetables with limited stock e.g. beetroot (4) buy because of the gift e.g. book & sweet dates. Well …… me too.
Thanks again for giving me this opportunity to meet some new friends, know their (vegetables) names, learn how to keep & cook them and move a step further towards organic living.

今次漁農嘉年華得到菜會所有老闆、義工和一班農夫姐姐盡心盡力幫助,得以完滿完成,我非常感恩,有今次寶貴經驗,展望來年菜會能夠更進一步。
今次嘉年華我衹是供應蔬菜和運送物資,已經足夠我忙碌,有時送貨到場順便探班而已,並非監場督工,大家唔好誤會。

[3] 做義工的感想

好少見到這麼虛陷的場面。
菜園可以在短時間內供應這麼多靚菜,玖哥與農夫姐姐冒著濃霜天未光就收割蔬菜,賣菜的人和食菜的人都非常感恩。
攤位的擺設,蔬菜的質量,包裝和銷售方式,義工的質素和形象,都是一流的。
建議負責推介菜會服務的人不要同時兼顧收錢,阻推廣和銷售雙方面的進程。
稱菜磅要清楚列明那幾種菜用那一個編碼,幫工就不用一面銷菜一面花時間看價錢表找尋合適的編碼稱菜。

[2] 做義工的感想

施姐姐叫我分享今次做義工的感受:當然可以啦!很開心可以幫手做義工,分享吃有機菜的感受,又可以推廣真正有機菜.有些朋友很想分辨有機菜,可以介紹他們去聽講座.大家合作無間和很合拍.有一點兒意見: 例如收錢方面可以放個錢箱作找贖,不用一個人負責,這可省卻時間,因為有時又要與人分享的話便會延遲找贖的時間了.因為有些客人沒有耐性的.可以先將所有菜包好,放在枱下,以便有客人來便立刻取給他們,不用立刻去包,會省時間和免混亂,因為有時會有許多客人來買菜的.另外,可以留少許作為給客人試一下也無妨.可以檢查那類菜比較好買,可以再入貨.今次的嘉年華值得再辦,因為來賓們已對有機菜有認識,不用再介紹,而且反應很好.小小意見希望可作參考.總而言之,今次的義工行動是很有意義和開心的.多謝晒!
另外,想問大埔有沒有訂菜的?我又向朋友介紹有機菜呢!

[1] 做義工的感想

做義工的感想:
當天去的時候在旺角走錯反方向(我是路痴),遲到要坐的士~
整個過程中很快樂, 團隊很合作, 有講有笑
忙時真的很忙, 每當一有人買菜的時候, 就會一大群人來買~
也遇見了幾位好友來幫襯~
雖然只幫了短短的四小時,也學到了很多智慧~
