For the post-70s generation in Hong Kong, "Kadoorie" means the Kadoorie Farm they visited in their childhood or the Kadoorie family that owns the China Light and Power Company Limited, which supplies electricity to Kowloon and the New Territories. Nevertheless, a huge influx of refugees fled into Hong Kong from Mainland China during the post-war period. Whereas people who used to be engaged as manufacturing workers in the mainland would settle and work in the urban areas of Kowloon and Hong Kong Island, many new arrivals made the New Territories their home and earned their living by farming. The Kadoorie brothers' aid to the farmers was regarded as giving them a second life. Based on the historical archives on the Karoorie family, this talk focuses on the history of agricultural Hong Kong in the post-war period, which has faded from the memory of ordinary Hong Kong people.

Talk conducted in Cantonese. Limited seat. Free admission by phone at 2651 4334 from 14.4.2018 (Saturday).
