Hong Kong has many beautiful and green areas. However, we are often too busy to enjoy a green life. Some of us would really love to plant flowers and vegetables and enjoy watching them grow. Although the problem is that having plants not only take up the very last space at home, but also brings insects or other hygiene problems.
Our goal is simple - to attract more people to re-connect with nature. However, we need a modern solution that provides convenience and affordability, so that more of us can enjoy gardening activities.
OASES has re-designed the gardening experience to lower the threshold of planting and watering activities. The solution is an innovative combination of rooftop gardening on industrial buildings and a clever mobile app that activates a remote control system and does all the work for you. When customers use our mobile app, they will be able to trigger the watering system and photograph their planting boxes. Customers can even request a gardener to attend to their plants and do the weeding – all through their mobile phone.
Through this new gardening experience, OASES aims to fulfill its social goals and social entrepreneurship ecology building. We sincerely hope to:
• Invite people to join the gardening world;
• Encourage people to share the joy of gardening;
• Make optimal use of building rooftops and create a greener Hong Kong.
