The “Horticultural life classroom”, a large-scale welfare campaign launched by Beijing World Horticultural Expo Coordination Bureau, entered the Jackson Hole Community in Yanqing District of Beijing on November 11, 2017.
During the event, a total of 17 senior horticulturalists delivered green declarations to call on horticulturalists to actively contribute to constructing the Beijing Expo 2019, practicing the green development path and building a beautiful China.
“We are Chinese horticulturists and we are practitioners of a better life. We follow the theme of Beijing Expo 2019, ‘Live Green, Live Better’, which integrates horticulture into the life and makes the life artistic. We are committed to promoting the harmonious coexistence between man and nature, practicing the green development path, building a beautiful China, building a good living environment for people and making contributions to the ecological civilization of the motherland,” the 17 horticulturists stood up and forcefully read the declaration together.
“The report of the 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China proposes building a beautiful China, which is the latest mission of our horticulturists. We will practice the environmental protection concept and actively participate in the Beijing Expo 2019 to promote horticulture and spread beauty,” a horticulturist said.
More than 10 veterans engaged in various fields of horticulture were invited to talk about their new ideas, new technologies and new products. The efforts they made in promoting innovative green development, their passion for horticulture and stories won tremendous applause from the audience.
The widely popular welfare campaign “Horticultural life classroom” has harvested a good reputation for its interesting experience activities such as “horticulture therapy”, “parent-child gardening”, “gardening in the food” and “drawing flowers”. In the future, the activities will continue to be held free of charge for citizens.
