Green Hub

Green Hub Green Hub

The Green Hub combines heritage and nature to help visitors reconnect with ‘soil, soul and society’. In a preserved colonial-era heritage site, visitors can enjoy locally sourced vegetarian food; take a heritage tour; join a transformative educational course; learn about community events and engage with a network of community members who care about living lightly on the planet.

The Old Tai Po Police Station is a Grade I listed historic building transformed by Kadoorie Farm and Botanic Garden into a ‘Green hub for Sustainable Living’. As the first permanent police station built by the colonial government in the New Territories soon after the takeover, The Old Tai Po Police Station represented the establishment of the British sovereignty sin the newly-leased territory in 1899.

The Old Tai Po Police Station has a typical setting and layout, with a charge room, cells, armoury, living quarters, and parade ground. Typical architectural features of the colonial period are still found here, such as the adoption of verandahs and louvre windows and the choice of local construction methods, including the Chinese-style timber roof structure with pan and roll tiles.

The architectural integrity of the Old Tai Po Police Station has been preserved in the Green Hub project. Representative features, such as the report room, retention cell and armoury of the Old Tai Po Police Station, have been developed into a display to illustrate the history of the site, Tai Po and the New Territories.
