Event description

Description


In this two-day Inspired Community Adventure, we explore how local village entrepreneurs design and produce products services inspired by both Mother Nature and their own sense of creativity. We will meet a group of farmers who came together to grow cacao and produce organic chocolate, a woman who makes her own virgin coconut oil using a special recipe calling for 11 types of coconut, a group of farmers who raise gurami fish in their rice terraces, a community of educators who have designed and developed an innovative early childhood educational curriculum intended to inspire local self-sufficiency and sustainability, and a social enterprise focused on promoting and preserving songket fabrics, a time-honored skill that is in danger of being lost and forgotten.
