On 23-24 December 2017, to celebrate Christmas, SRT's Shenzhen and HK staff went outing to the Nine Dragon Eco-Agriculture Park in Shenzhen and enjoyed a two-day ecological tour on the urban farm.
To benefit from the more than 3,300 acres of natural environment and agricultural land of the park , we adopted the outing theme of “Eco-Experience”to reinforce the notion that we have always upheld our company’s core value of “GREEN, DIVERSIFY, INNOVATE”, and that we support environmental protection and advocate green practice in all our company' s activities and operations.
One of the most challenging group activities during the two-day event was the three-person, four-legged race on a simulated pebbles-bed race track while unmercifully tested the participants’ thresh hold for pain and endurance, nevertheless the game succeed to demonstrate the importance of team members’ cohesion and mutual support in order to win the race. The subsequent was without doubt the noisiest game of all, that also kicked up the most dirt and sweat for the two teams. Interestingly, group skipping was very actively participated and enjoyed by most, may be having brought back childhood memories. The most savoring activity of the whole outing must be our lunch-cooking competition, both for expediency as well as gratification of the taste buds. All the food ingredients are organic, including free-run chickens and organic vegetables direct from the farm, cooking was done with firewood in open air. It was a short but truly invigorating outing for all, under almost perfect outdoor temperature, sun and blue sky.
