Farming is a big part of life here, and the tour includes a stop to plant a few seeds yourself. Locals use herbs to make a traditional medicine called jamu, and the R.O.L.E representative will show you how it’s made. Pay attention, because there will be a quiz — your guide will see how well your group can identify herbs just by their smell. Your guide will also introduce you to the nitty-gritty details of waste management and composting.
Watch as local women nimbly weave fabric from naturally dyed textiles. The weaver will demonstrate how to make a simple scarf, and then give you a turn at the loom. After this hands-on experience, you’ll get to eat lunch at the on-site restaurant, where you'll eat a meal made from sustainably harvested ingredients.
