Organic Farming Workshop From A Master

Description

There is no greater feeling than knowing where our food comes from, and it's even better when we can grow it on our own. At our Jakarta farm, we're on a mission to build a whole sustainable ecosystem by growing our produce organically, causing no harm to our environment and people who work together. It takes more time and patience, but isn't that what farming/gardening is all about?

We've been educating the local community for years at our farm and wanted to share this valuable knowledge with you too. Suppose you're interested in learning how to grow your produce like kale, rosemary, carrots, etc., organically and learn some practical skills in managing an organic farm only two hours away from Jakarta. In that case, this experience is for you.

Together with our head farmer, Pak Usaha, you'll spend a whole day learning all you need to know about organic farming right on the field. From land preparation, a double digging technique to build soil fertility, germinating seeds + different types of seeds, transplanting plants to the farm, care & maintenance for plants (vine plants included), composting, and harvesting. Note that we won't provide any written materials since we'll spend our time learning on the field, but feel free to take a journal with you!

Not only that, but you'll also meet our incredible community of local people in Cigombong and, most importantly, be inspired to grow your own produce organically back home.

Reviews

What makes a trip to this farm great are obviously the food (fresh produce) which is AMAZING!, new people you're gonna meet, and the detox from outside world. During my stay I met an expat family from The Netherlands who offered me a ride back to Bogor to catch my train. Ayu and Jocean are also such great hosts, you can tell the effort they put to make your stay unforgettable.

About Me

We love being surrounded by nature, and after working in the mining industry, I decided to give back to my roots by running this organic farm in Cigombong. Together with a local head farmer, Pak Usaha, we want to spread more awareness about the importance of growing our food organically to inspire the younger generation to be more conscious of what they consume.
