Michael is the founder and creative director of HK Farm. He also runs HK Honey and co-founded a community-focused art and design platform called Shanghai Street Studios in Yau Ma Tei.
Michael's interest in agriculture started when he was living in London. Visiting food markets on the weekends and cooking Sunday roasts, he slowly developed his interest in food ethics and food origin.
In the Summer of 2011, Michael moved to New York for three months to work at the world's largest rooftop farm, Brooklyn Grange. His experience in New York has inspired him to bring fresh urban agriculture concepts to Hong Kong's concrete landscape.
Matthew Edmondson was born and raised on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales, England. Inspired by the stories from the agricultural and industrial heritage of his surroundings he has followed a career in documenting and preserving heritage and memory, which eventually brought him to Hong Kong.
Matthew continues to work as a professional archivist and as an advocate for the preservation of Hong Kong's own heritage, and has also been inspired by the community and surroundings of Hong Kong, and its urban agricultural movement. Matthew is now learning to grow vegetables at HK Farm.
