  • Description


    I am a beginner to host and this is the first time. I started this earlier with the encouragement and support of my brother brother. He has been in this field for a long time, especially as a host. He also often brings volunteers from outside the country. And working on agriculture and gardening .. I learned a little more from him. And I think I can develop that with the small farms that I have. You can come and we can learn anything from each other. Especially learning to farm, raise livestock, garden, and social activities that can build a better person for us.

    My family and I own a sheep and goat farm. We are still using the old way and starting to develop to use a more sustainable way. We also plant forage types ranging from grass and perennials to animal feed. And also still learning for how to provide enough feed for livestock. One of them is through the fermentation process.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    On weekends tourists can find or go to a tourist spot. It can go to Bukit Lawang to see orangutans or go to other places. This is very helpful because everyday you work at the farm and you get a holiday on weekends. We can meet my friend at the tourist site. So chances are you were tricked or played by a few brokers because I have connections to it. About the issue of costs and what we will need later at the tourist attractions. Or meet with certain play groups to hone your talents to teach children.
