BUKIT LAWANG > THE ECO-FARM


The Eco-Farm - Click to enlargeThe Eco-farm is a 1,88 Ha big educational and organic farming centre. The formerly dormant land is now an interesting place to visit if you are interested in organic farming, agriculture and aqua farming. You can take part in planting and harvesting and learn about nature friendly farming techniques. Look around the farm and enjoy fresh coconut and other fruits. Study the aqua phonic farming, bio filtration, fish pond, ducks, goats, cows, vegetable garden, paddy field, plant nursery, and a collection of fruit trees and medical plants. The Eco-farm is a training centre for organic farming, composting and recycling waste.

This organic farming centre is located amongst local traditional farms and thus functions as an example for the surrounding community. The Eco-farm is frequently used for educational purposes. Schoolchildren, students, government officials, farmers and other local community members often come here to learn more. The office has a collection of books on the subject.

The farm is operated by PPLH Bohorok, a program of Yayasan Ekosistem Lestari, or shortly YEL (YEL is also the sponsor of the Bukit Lawang part of www.sumatraecotourism.com).
