There’s a sunflower farm near my school and is surrounded by garages, electronic and construction waste sites. The recent terential down poors have flooded the farm with a lot of the toxins coming from the surrounding area killing the sunflowers. As a way to save the farm, the owner has opened it up to the public to buy plants for $40HKD and to take pictures.
SIGNS POINTING THE WAY
It is hard to find the farm from the small but busy main road. Small hand made signs point the way.
The farmers estimates they have made up the financial loss by selling directly to the public.
Many are there to only take pictures and not to buy. Some expensive cameras are used by mostly younger Hong Kongers.
Many of the sunflowers have already died. They will be picked and thrown away as there are too many toxins in the plants.
A DYING FLOWER
Not sure if it is the dry weather or the toxins but some of the flowers are on the verge of death.
Some of the flowers are still salvageable and are bought by locals for $40HKD ($5 US).
