Wildflowering LA a great idea for Hong Kong too

Here's simple seeming project in LA, which could surely be applied in HK - maybe in some rural areas too.

Across Los Angeles County this spring, open, underused plots of land in churches, front yards, schools—even outside a post office—will be teeming with native wildflowers like California coastal poppies, bluebells, and purple needlegrass.
That's the premise of artist Fritz Haeg's rehabilitation project Wildflowering L.A., in which native wildflower seeds were sown at 50 sites across Los Angeles County this fall.

“It’s about restoring natural landscape back to the current-day L.A. urban landscape so [it’s] re-infusing native plants in nontraditional sites throughout the entire county,” said Laura Hyatt, development director at LAND.
