She obtained the Certificate of Permaculture Design Course (PDC) in Australia and joined as a tour guide of Produce Green Foundations after returning to Hong Kong. Hermia is the Co-Founder of FoodCycle+ and helps FoodCycle+ to recycle local organic waste into high quality compost, and use the compost in FoodCycle+ Farm.

My Sustainability Goals for 2022:

FoodCycle+ aims to promote local organic recycling via growing fresh, and low carbon organic vegetables with high quality local compost. We produce local organic compost by recycling organic waste. The use of local compost helps to regenerate the poor soil, and also mitigate climate change by sequestering carbon into soil.
