Help with the development of the site by managing, maintaining and implementing best practices for trees and plants
What we need
- Management and maintenance of vegetation (cutting, pruning, watering, weeding)
- Planting and propagation
- Identifying and implementing the best methods for long-term management of vegetation
- The schedule is flexible depending on the availability of the volunteer
Our 90acre commercial site, nestled between Tai Lam Country Park and the Gold Coast, is blessed with many trees, plants and flowers. When joining our programmes or visiting the café and shop, many also people enjoy coming here because of this natural environment. The site needs continual management, and we are also currently developing the site in various ways to help people understand more about Global issues, to envision them and enable them to take action. https://www.crossroads.org.hk/home/our-work/
What we have
The necessary tools and resources will be provided on site. We are happy to discuss the projects in more detail with volunteers before they commit.
Why this is important
Part of this development includes developing the vegetation and landscaping and will contribute towards attracting more people to come to Crossroads and be a part of our mission.

About the Organization
What we do
Crossroads Foundation is a Hong Kong based, non-profit organisation serving global need. We believe that, in a broken world that sees too much suffering, we should do all we can to link those who are in need with those who can provide help. So we provide an intersection, literally a crossroads, to bring both together. • Global Distribution: This distributes Hong Kong's quality excess goods as needed, internationally and locally. It provides a crossroads between need and supply. • Global X-perience: This offers simulated x-periences of global need. It provides a crossroads between the lifestyles of the rich and poor. • Global Handicrafts: This sells fair trade goods from people in poverty. It is a crossroads between those needing a fair income and those with buying power. • Global Hand: This provides a 'matching' website for public- private partnerships. It is a crossroads between for-profit and non-profit organizations who wish to address global need.
