To be able to work with the Balinese farmers, learn from them as well as study new developments in agriculture together with them, is what makes this course so special.  The farmers share their local wisdom that comes from generations of hands-on experience – and combining that knowledge with the expertise of external teachers brought the course to the next level. Be ready to get your hands dirty and your mind expanded!

Name, Title

For me personally, the whole experience is full of gratitude. I am feeling an abundance of appreciation for our little place in nature’s wonderful system. Nature has so much more to teach us, as life has so much to offer. Obviously, this experience falls into a bigger developing picture, but it has given me new insights and confidence that Agroforestry is a philosophy and practice, amongst many other much needed changes and emerging new practices, that will spread and contribute to a better and more sustainable life on earth.

We are a social enterprise

The Astungkara Way is a social enterprise whose giving goals are to support local farmers to transition to chemical-free farming and achieve self-reliance, food security, and financial sustainability as a community. The Astungkara Way allocates 15% of its revenue to local communities working with our team to achieve these goals.

This money is used to purchase tools, build bamboo learning pods in the field, acquire seeds and seedlings, and grow a fund to subsidize farmers making the transition to chemical-free farming methods.
