Uncover a Path in Pokfulam Village

Abstract: This time, HKU Postgraduate Student Association will work with Pokfulam villagers to uncover this historical path in the coming months. The main work includes weeding, moving bricks, cement delivery and so on. The project has been supported by Campus Internationalization and Integration Funding Scheme. Now we are recruiting volunteers to join in this 2-month project whose 2nd session in May.
Being one of the earliest indigenous historical settlements on Hong Kong Island, the 285-year-old Pokfulam Village has been known as the centre of the unique Agricultural and Industrial Cultural Landscape, and renowned as the first Hong Kong site listed in the World Monuments Watch List. In recent years, the villagers have organized themselves to better theirs home, to make it a sustainable development community. With the support from collaborators and community partners including the HKU, they have successfully built a 4000-square-feet community place, re-coloured roofing of 45 houses, revitalized historical buildings and advocated for a full-range sewage system going to be built in the near future. At the Southwest of the Pokfulam Village, the Pokfulam Rooad and Chi Fu Road have their retaining structure act as high walls surrounding the village’s boundary. It results in flooding. Whenever it floods, 4 out of 5 exits of the village would get blocked, leaving the majority population has no means of escape. In view of this need, the Village’s Cultural Landscape Conservation Group worked with the local Caritas team to formulate a strategy and finally discovered an old path built by the Hong Kong Dairy Farm workers in several decades ago. The old path, now covered with soil, heavy vegetation and garbage, connects the upper side of the Village to the nice nearby country park trail, serving as a very good alternative for evacuation and circulation.
This time, HKU Postgraduate Student Association will work with Pokfulam villagers to uncover this historical path in the coming months. The main work includes weeding, moving bricks, cement delivery and so on. The project has been supported by Campus Internationalization and Integration Funding Scheme. Now we are recruiting volunteers to join in this 2-month project whose 2nd session in May.
